Greg & Alex from Hepcat Featured on New Single with Kinky Coo Coo’s

Hepcat & Kinky Coo Coo'sSince there doesn’t seem to be any new Hepcat material in the works for some time we are instead treated to Alex Desert and Greg Lee doing a collaboration with Barcelona, Spain’s Kinky Coo Coo’s on a new Liquidator Records limited edition (500 copies) single “Tons Of Fun”.

The vocals were cut by Alex and Greg at the Volcano Lounge in Los Angeles with the band recording the backing track at their Kinky Lab Studios in Barcelona.

Sample the track here:

The Kinky Coo Coo’s are an all-star band featuring dual female singers, a 3 piece horn section and full band playing a Jamaican sound infected by 60‘s and 70‘s American Soul/ Funk culture. While one of the biggest names in Spain they have also toured to Europe and Japan and backed a number of Jamaican stars including Dave Barker, Rico Rodríguez, Laurel Aitken, Roy Ellis and Earl 16. They have released a number of well-received full length albums over the last near decade as well both on Liquidator (Spain) and Ska In The World (Japan).

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
