A little intro. David Hillyard is well known to general readers of this blog. He’s a very long standing OG member of The Slackers, founded his own Rocksteady 7, played on the now classic Hepcat album Out of Nowhere and even before that he was playing in San Diego as a founding member of the Donkey Show.
Back in 2012 Madness were again taking their madcap romp act on the road and doing one of their biggest shows ever. Vive Latino was one of those stops. It’s the biggest festival in Mexico City and one of the largest in the world with over 100,000 people attending every year and this was no different.
Angel City Records bills itself as “The Sounds of Yesteryear NOW” and has been steadily dropping some sweet vintage style Soul & Reggae nuggets from the likes of Mr. Symarip and Jackie Mendez over the last year.
They are set to release a new single from the dynamic duo of Keith & Tex backed by a cut from the man of many talents Scott Abels who goes under Stahl for these releases. This is his second one on the label in fact.
