Prodigy Medley

A 2 track funk single (7m 26s) — released May 28th 2012 on Wah Wah 45s

Having gained an army of loyal supporters and radio play from DJs as diverse as Huey Morgan, Lauren Laverne, Gilles Peterson and Craig Charles over the last 18 months, brass juggernaut Hackney Colliery Band deliver the first taste of what to expect from their second album for Wah Wah 45s, due for release in early 2013.

HCB's homage to rave pioneers The Prodigy has already become a hugely popular part of their live show, and is now set to destroy dance floors with a rollercoaster ride that takes in some of Keith and co's finest works including the furious death jazz take of "Jericho", the dubwise "Out Of Space" and club anthem "No Good", all given that HCB twist.

The flipside is another original from the band with drummer Olly Blackman penning an afro-beat flavoured monster for the more discerning music lover that hints at more of what's to come from the band's second long-player.

Hackney Colliery Band is East London's unique take on the brass band phenomenon. Featuring trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone and marching percussion, the band are totally acoustic and yet able to blow the roof off any room. Hackney Colliery Band's members have hugely diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from work with cutting edge jazz group Porpoise Corpus to the Bollywood Brass Band, and from Jarvis Cocker to major orchestras. This breadth of musical talent is clearly on display in their eclectic repertoire. Mining nuggets of funk, hip-hop and hi-octane rock from the musical coalface and throwing in a few chunks of Balkan brass, ska and contemporary jazz for good measure, the Hackney Colliery Band's setlist is as diverse as the London borough that gave them their name.

Look out for the release party for this enormous single at The Garage in Islington on Friday May 25th featuring a full live set and support from Jazzanova, United Vibrations, Scrimshire live and many more!
