…Tape saturation and distortion abound on a collection that boasts outstanding homages to R&B classics, alongside four strong original compostitions. Jimmy Reed’s 1959 ‘Come Love’, Sonny Boy Williams II 1963 standard ‘Help Me’ and Price & Walsh’s sublime ‘Ain’t No Love in The Heart of The City’ are just three of the timeless numbers given the Blues Foundation treatment on this stunning release.

A VERY strong set from beginning to end, “A Clip Round The Ear” is an absolute knockout of an album. Glenn Prangnell continues to amaze with his extremely sharp songwriting skills and sense of melody that carry on and build upon the very best of British Invasion era classic music. The soul and blues that Suzi Chunk bring add a depth and power that very few other current female singers can even come close to touching. This combination, known affectionately to fans as Unc N’ Chunk, blows the doors off every time. For a band that has made a huge impression on me from the first, I can easily say this is their best album to date and that’s no small statement. Anyone appreciating intelligent, witty and sharp lyrics combined with the very best of true rock, pop and soul, pick up this album. Unlike the other times you’ve caught a “Clip Round The Ear”, you’ll be thrilled you got this one.

Hello All! It’s been a while since I last posted an update but things have been pretty hectic as I’ve been working on two albums simultaneously! Last month work was finally completed on the recording of the Miss Modus record. I’m awaiting some promo/album shots from Miss M and then I’ll get to work on arranging the design/layout for the album. It looks like it’ll be a vinyl and digital release with a view to putting out a CD version soon after. Great fun was had by all and I can’t wait to get it out there!
The next Groovy Uncle/Suzi Chunk album is coming along very nicely too and we are back in the studio early April to lay down some lead and backing vocals. We are about 3/4 of the way through with this album and I’m really pleased with it thus far. The songs and subject matter are really varied and a number of the themes are inspired by childhood memories and anecdotes from my parents. I’m not sure exactly when we will release it but this too will see a vinyl release.
Albums 6 and 7 are on the way!!
