PRESS RELEASE:
“Little Barrie are back once again with a brand new album ‘Stand Your Ground’ out on October 2” and this EP is the first taster of what the boys have been working on since we last saw them. It comes out on October 16th on the PIAS/Wall Of Sound imprint Genuine Records.

When their old drummer decided that the touring/recording/touring life wasn’t for him. the band were left without a backbeat just as they were writing the new album. In a flash of inspiration they headed off to New York to record with Dan The Automator on production and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion drummer Russell Simins taking over sticks duties for a while. Hence the new material is understandably their funkiest yet. A harder, tauter sound, ‘Stand Your Ground’ stretches Little Barrie beyond even the expansive boundaries they mapped out on their debut, and adds to the rich sources of inspiration they nodded at before (The Meters, the Stone Roses. Shuggie Otis, Jimi Hendrix). They’ve stirred in some other icons of authentic rock and roll abandon: The Sonics. Gene Vincent and The Cramps have all been on the lb stereo over the past 12 months, and there is a consequent directness and frill-free intensity to the music.

Finding a new permanent drummer didn’t turn out to be a huge problem either: both Barrie Cadogan (vocals, guitar) and Lewis Wharton (bass) already knew new boy Billy Skinner, although for years neither of them knew he could play the drums. “I was in a country-rock band,” Billy says, “so I guess I kept that a bit quiet!” These new songs are just brilliant – full of soul and funk but with tunes and riffs to die for. Perfect for your clubs, let us know what you think below.”
