Wah Wah 45s are proud to present the brand new single from one-man horn driven funk music machine, The Gene Dudley Group.
Following on from the recent club smasher - a cover of Todd Terje's Inspector Norse - The Gene Dudley Group return with another dance floor destroyer! Original cut Dynamite in the Still of the Night features the powerhouse vocals of Anne Frankenstein (who also performed on big hitter No Trouble on the Mountain) just in time to cause explosions around your bonfire!
On the flip comes another funky cover version given the Gene Dudley treatment. In what is fast becoming something of a tradition, Mr Dudley has taken an early Wah Wah 45s release - in this case Benny Poole's soul/jazz banger Pearl Baby, Pearl - and re-worked it for 2015. Fresh from his contributions to the Zambidoose album, and work with partner Myron for Stones Throw Records, Eric Boss AKA E (from Myron & E) adds some of his trademark vocals into the mix, making this package a double dance floor heavy hitter!
And don't forget, The Gene Dudley Group's sophomore LP, Zambidoose, is out now!

I'd recommend getting the full set of singles by Mohawkestra. Every track is killer. Paint it black breathes new life into what we all know is one of the Stone's best. Outrageously funky playing, and super, super in the pocket.
I was curious about the name of group. Wondered whether it was from a shared love of Alan Hawkshaw and Sun Ra? Jesse Brown
