Brixton punk-funkers ALABAMA 3 have announced the release of a new album with a brand new video.
The itchy, loping 'Thank You' is taken from Cold War Classics Vol 2 which follows on from 2021's Step 13, and is their second album for Submarine Cat Records.
“Who’d have thought Laurel and Hardy’s 'That’s another mess you’ve got me in to' could be so prescient today," ponderssays frontman Larry Love. "We are all living in some black and white movie where politicians are comedians and where memories of the Cold War keep us all hot under the collar. Thank You for sweet FA.”
Produced by Danton Supple and Greg Fleming, Love describes the album as “a trip to that warm place in your mind where spying on your neighbour was de rigueur and fall out shelter ballads and Checkpoint Charlie funk ruled the airwaves."
