Charles Bradley - "Now That I'm Gone / Can't Stop Thinking About You"
Charles Bradley does it again! Ever since his spine-cracking "Take It As It Come" 45' rampaged dancefloors last year, Charles Bradley has been the name on the lips of Funk & Soul fanatics across the nation. But what's that Brand New Sound behind him? Enter THE BULLETS! Hailing from Staten Island, The Bullets are the newest and rawest addition to the Daptone Stable. Anchored by the obese basslines of Dirt Rifle, this four piece unit has trimmed all the fat off their sound and left only the meatiest, chewiest, HEAVY FUNK FLESH. On "Now that I'm Gone," Mr. Bradley painstakingly pours his tears-and-sweat vocals over a stone steady funk punctuated with the hypnotic ostinatos of T.N.T. on the guitar. "Everyday," he moans as the drums bulldoze through time on the flip, "I'm thinking about your love." If your head don't bob to this one, you oughta go to a doctor to get your neck checked!
