Cornershop & The Double ‘O’ Groove Of – full tracklist & Pre-order details

Ample Play Release

Artists: Cornershop featuring Bubbley Kaur

Title: Cornershop & The Double O Groove Of

Release Date: 14 March 2011   Label: Ample Play Records

CD Cat: AMPLA CD 09   Download Cat: AMPLA DD 09

1 United Provinces Of India 3:26     Full fat funk melds with the cream of Punjabi folk, asking the question, why has such naturalness never been done before.

2 Topknot 3:39     ‘The band’s now-classic 2004 single Topknot,” Spin magazine.  A massive track for urban stations, turban stations, clubs as well as Indian weddings.  So big that M.I.A. asked to drop a rap on it.

3 The 911 Curry 3:33     The A-team meet up for an afternoon meal – a plan comes together, until Murdock has to flirt with the waitress.

4 Natch 2:34     The other part of the double ‘A’ sided Topknot single, and often even more loved by the DJ for its simplicity and French legion immediacy.

5 Double Decker Eyelashes 4:13     Already being used by select USA bass clubs to get the party started, keep the party going, and ending the party.  Being laidback & having the space is leading dancefloorers to improvise, and they take great joy in having the ability and scope to do it once more.

6 The Biro Pen 4:28      A sharp pen in its day was prime currency, guaranteed to get you out of any tight spot.  This lament lays it down heavy, even with its drum solo reprieve.

7 Supercomputed 3:44 Kraftwerk meet Irene Cara in a dune buggie.

8 Once There Was A Wintertime 3:14      Capturing the snow drenched wintry season with human warmth and northern brass.

9 Double Digit 3:38     Military again, until its slow build boils over with bass funk, as if the Brontë sisters came from an Indian cowshed.  This is maybe why Tjinder thinks Punjabi Folk Music was the first form of hip-hop, and has written a White Paper report on it.

10 Don’t Shake It 5:42      Don’t play this one too loud, it will stay in your head for a week, and then move in with you after another week.  All is well that ends well.  So well that it has extended beats, ending an album that intends to live forever – fame.

Listen to Previews of the New EP:

1. Houston Hash 1. Houston Hash - PREVIEW

Houston Hash is the ultimate truck driving song, with a lighthearted description of the road as well as home life, put another way trucks & cooking.

The track was produced in cooperation with the United Association of Songleading Staff & was regularly used for instruction at all Devon & Cornwall Songleading Summer Camps.  It is recommended that you check with your Band Director before ordering music arrangements.

2. Soul School, School Dinners 2. Soul School: School Dinners - PREVIEW

The usual Soul School with an added dress-down Friday funk from Cambridge, Massachusetts…with more bits from Manchester & Liverpool to drive it home.

3. The Battle Of New Orleans 3. The Battle of New Orleans - PREVIEW

Just before he passed away legendary BBC Radio 1 Disc Jockey, John Peel asked his favourite groups to record a Lonnie Donegan track for him to play across his Christmas/New Year Special shows.  We chose The Battle Of New Orleans, which he took high in the charts, and also hit the number one spot in the US in 1959 performed by Johnny Horton.  They love the track for its attitude, spirit and for the fact that it was one of the earliest country tracks to top the charts.

4. Lynndie England 4. Lynndie England - PREVIEW

As the old reggae spirituals said “love is lovely and war is very, very ugly,” & this contemplates the end of all wars including New Orleans to more modern expeditions.
