‘They swing like the devil’s own dick. Alabama 3 beat a righteous drum and party like bastards.’ PARTY TIME! For the last three years Alabama 3 have been hosting a regular (and very irregular) party weekend, running over two nights in Lewisham and Brixton. ‘Outlaw’ is not just another club night. It is an event, a happening - never to be repeated and not to be missed. Each month is a veritable banquet for music lovers of all ages, musical tastes and backgrounds and from all across the country. THE LIVE ROOM In the live room a host of new and exciting young bands perform music reflecting the varied genres that Alabama 3 have embraced in their own work. Expect live acts performing country, blues, funk, punk and dirty old rock n roll, all cut with an alternative edge, and seamlessly brought together by our regular DJs playing grooves that keep the audience on the floor between acts. Expect cabaret and performance artists.
“The ghost of Mississippi Fred McDowell haunting the fingers of Rock Freebase on guitar, Larry Love’s larynx looser than Howlin’ Wolf. Devlin Love’s vocals as sweet as Sister Rosetta and Harpo Strangelove’s harmonica cooking up a Sonny Terry vibe - welcome to the Delta Blues alive and kicking in 2008” THE DANCE ROOM In the dance room the tempo is kept to the max, all night long. As well as a variety of guest DJ’s, Alabama 3’s own Rev D Wayne Love takes to the decks at each ‘Outlaw’, as does their ever popular tour DJ Tattoo John, who has been playing with the band since their inception. Larry Love and other members of the band often join them, playing tunes, or rapping with the DJs. The dance floor stays packed and lively until the early morning hours.
Outlaw is the 12 track studio album from Alabama 3 Brixton cowboys Alabama 3 are one of Britain's most exhilarating live bands. Known to the couch potato masses for their track 'Woke Up This Morning' - theme tune to “The Sopranos” - their three studio albums “Exile On Coldharbour Lane”, “La Peste”, “Power In The Blood” and acoustic live album “Last train to Mashville Vol 2” have established the band members as popular heroes. 'Outlaw' is perhaps their best work yet. A more stripped down, melodic album than its predecessors, 'Outlaw' is a superb mixture of tongue-in-cheek nobility and honest, heartfelt song writing. Tracks like 'How can I protect You' and the first single, the ode to the Man in Black 'Hello I'm Johnny Cash' highlight an album that is down to earth yet eccentric, uplifting yet reflective and a sure fire instant classic. Please note that this title will be shipped ahead of the official release date of 23rd May 2005.
