(CD/Digital) Légère Recordings LEGO040, (LP) Mocambo Record MLP1006, 2012-04-27

Starting as Ed Meme & The Forms, this 10-piece powerhouse UK band became the more pronouncable The Impellers when signing with Freestyle Records in 2008, a label on which they released their smashing first album Robot Legs the following year. They're now back with their second full-length recording, This Is Not A Drill, to be sorted in the Heavy Funk section rather than the Deep Funk one. This record is indeed a blast, with huge horns, a high-energy rhythm section, groovy hammond licks and authentic soulful vocals from 'Lady' Clair Witcher. The single, Politiks Kills People, could be the answer to our recent Election Mix, so we played it in our latest Bag of Goodies selection, and we should also feature their Ting Tings cover That's Not My Name in a future Molesting Laura playlist… Well since this album's all killer, no filler, and full of heavy breaks, we could play any kinda track in there quite easily!
