‘Soul Like Fire’ features 18 bands from all over the world with original song contributions from the UK and the rest of Europe, USA and Australia, all different in style, but all come under the moniker of ‘60’s Mod Beat’.From the UK we have the Prisoners sounding THE PATTERNS, MODUS from Scotland provide foot-tappin’ modern retro grooves, THE KEEPERS from Belfast give us an ace garage blast whilst THE HOODWINKS and THE MARKSMEN provide perfect examples of 60’s British R&B. THE SHAKE! give us classic rock ‘n’ soul with THE IMPACT’s 60s style stomper and THE LOST 45s mellow winner completing the UK line-up.
To Europe where we have from Norway, THE INDIKATION with a great groover from their “In terms of The Indikation” CD, THE HERETICS give a sike slice of R&B and THE SMELL OF MUTINY provide psychedelic beat-rock. From Sweden come the excellent MOVEMENTS with a track from their ‘Grain of oats’ CD. Two bands from Germany next – the manic beat masters THE BLOW-UPS and BeatRevolver who both provide top garage beat. Onto Belgium and the R&B mastery of THE GONKS (check out the video on myspace) and then to finish the Europe tour, to Greece and the superb FRANTIC V with a brand new track.
Last and definitely not least to the USA and Australia and those stalwarts of garage R&B – THE WOGGLES with a track from their ‘Ragged but right’ CD. Oz/Europe band DollSquad play an excellent cover of the Ray Charles classic ‘I don’t need no doctor’
