8/10 Mike Staff review, 07 March 2013

After a slow and cerebral start to the week things have really livened up today with that superb Castleface Velvet Underground thing and now this latest offering from King Salami & the Cumberland Three on reliable UK garage rock imprint Dirty Water.

This multicultural troupe from London, recently expanded to a five-piece with the addition of Mexican sax-man Chuchi Sobrassada, boogie and twist their way through 14 blazing cuts of party-focused rock’n’roll here, bringing to mind the rock’n’roll greats of the ‘50s and ‘60s mixed with a crisp modern hi-gain edge and occasional surfy moments. It’s reminding me a lot of the awesome recent album on Dirty Water by MFC Chicken, and there’s more than a touch of King Khan & the Shrines in places.

It’s nothing revolutionary but it’s gleefully delivered - Salami himself oozes personality as the manic master of ceremonies while his backing band are whip tight, knocking out high energy rhythm and blues with a jagged assuredness. It’s toe-tapping fun all the way through, a really good quality party record!
