Press Release :
The Haggis Horns are an eight piece live funk extravaganza combining heavy breakbeat funk, soul, hip-hop and afrobeat with the virtuosity of trained jazz musicians. They release 'The Traveller' on November 20th and there's no doubt this one's gonna make you move. Here you have a double dose of superb instrumental funk in its purest form, taking you back to the likes of the JBs and Tower Of Power. The 12" epitomizes this incredible 8-piece: a slamming raw funk groove with echoes of afro beat, disco and jazz, condensed into 15 minutes of pure dance floor magic. Debut single, 'Hot Damn' featuring the vocal talent of John McCallum quickly sold out and had the likes of Mr. Scruff, Daddy G and DJ EASE crying out for more. With an album ready to blow-up in the Spring of 2007, and live dates as part of the tour band for Corinne Bailey Rae and Mark Ronson already under their belts, these funky fellas are set to make waves. You need this record.
