Baker Brothers

In With The Out-Crowd

Peddler Records

Released: 27th June 2005 | 11 track album
The Baker Brothers entered our realm a few years ago, at a time when interest in Funk music seemed to be hitting a peak. Collectors slit each other's fiscal throats for rare records, the press sniffed blood and smelled interest and there were a great many young bands cutting their own takes of a largely forgotten sound. Most of these hopefuls were no more than pub-rock versions of the Meters, and certainly too weak to lift the extinguished torch James Brown left behind. The Baker Brothers were: and are - nothing like. In fact, when I first heard their debut singles it was not immediately obvious who they could possibly be. The unfashionably jazzy, unashamedly British and oddly punkish mix of Funk was too fresh to be some rediscovered old recordings - but they seemed too charming and seasoned to be a new act. They certainly sounded too good to be so young 'and who'd have ventured that they hailed from Bournemouth? They could more easily have cut this live set during one of their countless hometown showstoppers, but to prove once again that the rural and coastal backwaters are the UK's true fertile ground, this unique trio: a Motörhead of funk, if you will: take their country wares to the dirty heart of London like hobbits to Mordor. Two brothers, one pie-eater and a whole load of something else.'
"One of the best live acts around, wowing audiences with an authentically raw sound that veers from punchy jazz-funk to raunchy, hard funk. If you?ve yet to hear them live and get a chance to go to one of their gigs take it."
Matt Aniss, IDJ
"An album of thrilling liveness that captures the spirit of the Fabulous Baker Brothers and their muscular Meters / Stones inflected funk. And while their studio productions are heavy, it?s live that they really impress."
Richard E, Undercover
"This live Jazz Caf? set boosts TBB?s plectrum-pounding, rhythm and blues amp-funking to a much more applause-worthy level beyond the confines of an ordinary studio recording. No stand-still shyaways, a whooping crowd eggs on flurries of fingers across the fret-board, along with, you?d imagine, an Animal-type mass of hair on the drums, backing sections justifying the live angle, the odd sweaty vocal and the slower, hipster numbers giving onlookers a chance to catch their breath from the frenzy. The Baker Bros pull out all the stops to give punters their money?s worth."
Matt Oliver, Update
