'The Hum' (Domino Publishing/ Weird World Records) comes only 18 months after Hookworms' smashing debut 'Pearl Mystic' (also Domino Publishing/ Weird World Records) . It takes the blueprint of it's predecessor proto-punk, garage rock, Washington DC hardcore, 80’s British spacerock – and further stamps it with the band’s seal. Leaner, meaner and more propulsive from the Leeds band. SPOTIFY

NEW WRITER: KING JAMES & THE SPECIAL MEN (JIMMY HORN)

Domino welcomes "the champions of New Orleans classic R&B…" -Alex Rawls, My Spilt Milk

Hot. Sweaty. Raw. Soulful. King James & The Special Men sound like New Orleans on wax, and they represent the Crescent City like no other. Rhythm & Blues ("Rock and Roll", as it's referred to outside of New Orleans) was born in "The City That Care Forgot" during the late 40's/early 50's in the years after WWII, and these very special men indeed are doing everything possible to not only keep it alive, but make it strong, vibrant, and relevant to contemporary devourers of great music everywhere. How do they do it? With high-powered live shows and a steady stream of original recordings. Their Monday "red beans and R&B" residency at BJ's Lounge in the 9th Ward has become a must see show for travelers to New Orleans (including several world-famous musicians), and in the summer of 2013 they traveled to New York City to bring their unique style of raucous boogie to ecstatic crowds at Lincoln Center. In 2014, the group played with the inimitable Charles Bradley at Santa Monica Pier, and their debut album is scheduled for release via Special Man Records.

Today, the band's status as one of New Orleans' best kept secrets seems to be changing rapidly into something that is anything but. Their weekly gigs are routinely packed, and after the band finishes its last set in the wee, wee hours, you will find the same phrase on everybody's lips, whether local or globetrotter: "You gotta see The Special Men!"

 

NEW SIGNING: GIRL BAND

Girl Band | 18/09/14

After a 7 minute single in "Lawman" at the start of the year, a 24 second follow-up in "The Cha Cha Cha", and then the critically accalimed, visceral hissy-fit of "De Bom Bom" ("could this be the best track ever?" - Tom Ravenscroft, BBC Radio 6) the Irish four piece today join us here at Domino Publising.

Formed a couple of years back and influenced by the likes of Bad Brains, Swell Maps, James Chance and the Contortions, Neu, The Birthday Party, Ben Frost and minimal techo, they take their melting pot of influences and open minds to create something almost indefineable.

                               



The band are currently on tour in Ireland and will follow this with further European dates in October and later into the year.

They will release their debut album in 2015.
