With an outstanding rhythm section and its deep roots, this nine piece band is really showing what´s what as they deliver hit on hit. Mean, bad-ass covers such as ´´Sapphire´´ by Big Danny Oliver to Scatman Crothers version of ´´Ghost riders in the sky´´ are blended into an explosive cocktail with their on material.
Nosey Joe & The Pool Kings are reaching to the roots of music and with Lil´ Linn's guest appearance on the duet ´´Knock Knock´´ they have already set their mark in history. This great mix of swing, rhythm & blues and rock & roll really takes us on a wild ride.
This band is packed with talent. Ubbe Rydeslätt, Nosey Joe´s frontman, unsheats his talents as great singer and skilled writer. As former member of Snakepit Rebels he spent quite some time in the well-known ´´Abbey Road´´ studio. But that's not all, guitar player Totte, played on The Go Getters' debut record and bassist Mika is originally from Knock-Out Greg and the Blue Weather. The band is further backed by the infamous Johnny Blue Orchestra's awesome brass section.
However brilliant the album is, Nosey Joe & The Pool Kings should absolutely be experienced live. This band totally overwhelms its audiences with a sound from the old times remade for the scene of today.
