Lefties Soul Connection – Doin' The Thing

I figured it was about time that I delved into my collection to bring you something (reasonably) new.

Lefties Soul Connection started out in Amsterdam in 2001 and released this – their debut single in 2002. Three more singles were released before the long-awaited LP finally hit the shops in 2006.

The follow-up to this was their 2007 album “Skimming The Skum” which rather surprisingly only yielded 1 single – the fantastic “Fais Do Do”. However, they continued to release singles including a cover of the classic “Organ Donor” by Dj Shadow as well as Clarence Carter’s “Backdoor Santa” and the now tiresome “Here Come The Girls”

Their sound is very heavily influenced by the likes of The Meters, JB’s & Booker T & The MG’s. Unsurprisingly then, the songs are very hammond driven with crashing drums and the obligatory wah-wah guitar. Oh, and I’m led to believe they put on a great live show too (not that I’ve had the pleasure to see them myself – yet!)
