The Bamboos

Hard Up/Ride On Time 7" Vinyl

$11.99


Melbourne’s legendary soul / funk 9 piece have released their vital first single from 2020 on a dinked 7” single.

 

“Hard Up” is a stripped down, serious piece of Funk with Kylie Auldist’s fearless vocals that manages to tap into the widespread sense of unease that’s coming to typify the modern age for too many of us. The track’s spare, insistent groove and whistled hook display a back to basics approach, tapping into the propulsive rawness of the band’s beloved early catalogue. 

The B-side is the first appearance of a storming uptempo funk cover version of Black Box’s 1989 Italo House smash “Ride One Time”. As usual with any Bamboos cover version (think “King Of The Rodeo” and “The Wilhelm Scream”), this is more of a total reinvention. The tight drums, bang on horn stabs, Kylie’s epic vocals and the instant recognition factor make this a certified DJ weapon, wherever the party finds itself to be right now. 

Tracklist:

Side A: Hard Up
Side B: Ride On Time

In fact, depending on where you live and the ship date, you may not get the album until after its official release date. All pre-order products will display an expected "SHIPS ON OR AROUND" date in the product description, which is subject to change, due to unexpected delays, beyond our control. Additional items purchased on the same ticket as a pre-order will not ship until the time specified in the description of the pre-ordered item.

We pack our vinyl and posters securely and carefully in custom crafted boxes and tubes, but in some cases this type of wear is simply unavoidable during transit.
