Cardiff’s most vibrant band Boy Azooga piloted by Davey Newington have announced details of the release of their debut album, 1,2 Kung Fu!, on Heavenly Recordings on Friday 8th June 2018.
With only two singles released so far from the album the band have given the fans an insight of whats to come from their debut. It’s filled with influences from bands such as Sly & The Family Stone, Caribou, Black Sabbath, Outkast, Van McCoy, Ty Segall and The Beastie Boys.
The track-listing of the 11-track album, co-produced by the band & Eddie El Shakarchie aka Dr Ed Boogie and recorded in part in Eddie’s front room in Cardiff, is as follows:
- Breakfast Epiphany
- Loner Boogie
- Face Behind Her Cigarette
- Walking Thompson’s Park
- Breakfast Epiphany II
- Taxi To Your Head
- Losers In The Tomb
- Hangover Square
- Sitting On The First Rock From The Sun
The band have also shared new single ‘Loner Boogie’, filled with infectious swampy fuzz reminiscent to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
2018 is going to be a huge year for the band.
They take their loose-limbed live show on the road later this year and the dates include their own headline shows, support slots with The Magic Gang & Rolling Blackouts and Coastal Fever and an appearance at this year’s Heavenly Weekender at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge.
