New Year Ninety 2017 – 20 to 11

Now reaching the thick end of the New Year Ninety 2017 chart –  in to the top twenty countdown from 20 to 11.

I would like to make a special reference to my co-founding partner – Julie Norbury –  of the original site in the last decade – who died in 2011 – as always my inspiration for keeping writing music reviews.

GU-RU – Flo – Audio

The English acid-funk trio GU-RU are imminently set to release the EP Into the Light.



Anticipate the unanticipated on hitting play with GU-RU as their reference book pulls on Kenny Ball in to which they infuse synthetics and stringed instrumentation leaving the listener cloudily wondering how many Diamonds in the Sky did Lucy leave?

The analogue recordings allow GU-RU to deliver a sound which blows warm breath on to the listeners ear-lobes as the approaching twenty minutes release caresses the neck and shoulders, taking away the strains of the day.

My pick of Into The Light is the penultimate – Flo – which has a snazzy-jazz swing as buffered keys weave with extended bars in a three and three-quarter minutes space-walk.

Taken from their single The Raw is Into The Light, which was recently captured in live performance at Old Queens Head in London.
