Very excited to premiere a new song by Florida garage soul outfit Woolly Bushmen. The track is called 'Goin’ Out West' and comes off the band's upcoming album 'In Shambles,' which will be available on LP, CD and download on May 10th, 2019 via Pig Baby Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
Formed in early 2011 and based out of Winter Park, Florida, The Woolly Bushmen have managed to combine 1960's rock and roll with 1950's rockabilly and a dash of soul, forming their own unique genre of all original crowd-rocking songs. These young musicians have captured the respect and admiration of seasoned musicians, some icons in their own right, that are twice their age while grabbing every audience by the scruff of their necks and whipping them into a dance frenzy. Over the past eight years, The Woolly Bushmen have played shows with iconic acts like Southern Culture on the Skids, The Coathangers, The Black Lips, King Khan, Ty Segall, The Beat, The Fleshtones, Schizophonics, Gringo Starr, and many more, as well as frequently being invited to play festivals. They currently do routine tours of Europe and the United States.
A typical Woolly Bushmen show will see lead singer, Simon Palombi, switch from vintage Farfisa organ to guitar, whilst, Jacob Miller, switches from bass to guitar allowing the band to play two different sets in one, much to the surprise and delight of the audience! The songs of The Woolly Bushmen are based around catchy organ and guitar riffs with infectious choruses that sound straight out of the charts of the late 1950's and 1960's. These all original songs give you, the listener/audience, the sense that you've heard them before...only, you haven't unless you've seen The Woolly Bushmen or listened to Tampa, Orlando, St. Louis, and Philadelphia college/independent radio. The sole purpose of The Woolly Bushmen's music is to get people dancing...and it works every time!
Leave your angst at home, nothing heavy or moody here! One reviewer said, "It's like Buddy Holly fronting The Troggs." Or, "Jerry Lee Lewis on crack" that is the unusual and unique mix of 1950's and 1960's at its best.
