by King Salami and the Cumberland 3

In 2006, one Japanese, one French, one Caribbean and one Spanish got together to form a black rhythm & blues party band!

London's newest R&B-punk sensation – okay, maybe our only R&B-punk outfit – are making fun times where ever they go. With a repertoire encompassing many of the greats of the ’50s and ’60s you won't be able to help but move your feet. The King howls like Screaming Jay Hawkins with Bo Diddley chasing his coat-tail and with Andre Williams trying to offer up some of his bacon fat. This man never stops shakin' and twistin' and groovin' while the Cumberland 3 (former members of the Ulcers, Chinese Lungs and Parkinsons) play their own branded mix of vintage rockabilly desperate rock'n'roll and a bit of soul with fire, energy, gusto and fun!
They have played all over Europe, and more recently Japan & China, sharing the stage with the Pretty Things, the Trashmen, the Standells, the Mummies, the Bellrays, the Cynics, etc...and have released a bunch of killer 45's on different European record labels.

This CD release collects a bunch of their 7" tracks plus rarities and compilation tracks.
