The brand new release from the nine piece instrumental Juggernaut. In a musical first for the band, they wrote, arranged and recorded music with specific collaborators in mind. They held sessions with two of their heroes; a congregation with two musical and spiritual father figures from opposite ends of The Apple's rich spectrum: Fred Wesley - Pioneer of funk trombone in particular and funk horn arranging in general with James Brown, The JBs, Parliament-Funkadelic and The Horny Horns. SHLOMO BAR - Vocalist, Percussionist, Godfather of Israeli world music. Figurehead of the highly influential ethno-fusion ensemble HaBrera HaTeevit.
The exciting process of these recordings exposed the band's many roots and influences; elements of The JBs funky foundations, African, Cut & Paste, Soul, Middle Eastern, and Dub are all clearly displayed on KINGS, strained through the band�s unique Decks-Horns-Soundboard Effects-Double Bass-Drums lineup.
This release signifies the next step in The Apples' ever thickening groove stew, and the boys are intent on pushing it further and this summer will once again take to festival and club stages for another string of their relentless live sets filled with runaway grooves, countless twists and turns, dizzying transitions, spontaneous arrangements, the occasional reworking of early 90�s alt-rock fist shakers, and the basic jump-up-and-down crazyness for which The Apples are known stages, dancefloors, soundsystems, playlists, films, televisions, cars and ears worldwide. As the conspiracy continues, watch this space, and bring a change of clothes.
