  • Signed Test Press Filth!
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Hey, some people like test pressings. After all they're very rare and in this case, there's only four of them in existence - two for our own personal stash and two for sale. This one happens to be a small hole test pressing, so that makes you even more special should you buy it. We'll autograph it as well.

    Unfortunately these are only for sale to US customers, as the risk for loss in shipping is a lot greater mailing overseas. Thus we've made shipping prohibitively expensive to rule it out. We will ship via UPS or USPS priority for domestic customers and arrange signature, etc., whatever your preference.

about

Fresh off the release of their first live album (and fourth overall), Soundcheck at 6, The Du-Rites waste no time getting back in the fold with two nasty sides of all new material. The latest 7” is a slight departure from the previous 7” (“Zodiac” b/w “Monster”). Where the personality of incidental vocals dominated that release, J-Zone & Pablo Martin split the difference this time and give us one half that and one half pure dynamite instrumental.

The dynamite instrumental would be the A-Side, “Mad Dog”. It starts with an off-the-wall, polyrhythmic drum solo, before gradually easing into an uptempo and somewhat unorthodox (yet still dance floor friendly) groove from J-Zone. The pocket goes deeper once the bass joins in, and the four car collision of distorted combo organs, analog synths, rolling tambourines and Pablo’s turkey grease Blaxploitation guitars put a spooky Psychedelic spin on The Du-Rites’ trademark brand of funk.

Candid vocals and humor are also a part of The Du-Rites approach, and though the A-Side is strictly for the groovers and shakers, the flip has a little for everyone. Pablo’s rolling funk bassline and honorary band member Bruce Martin’s (no relation) congas anchor a mean and nasty mid-tempo cooker that’s much heavier in feel than the A-Side. J-Zone’s open hi-hat barks throughout play off the rest of the rhythm section for a lock so serious that the guitar and keys only need to leave a tip and the silly banter - a nod to both cheap fragrance and Kool & The Gang’s 1970 classic, “Funky Man” - doesn’t get in the way.

The Du-Rites’ goal is always to expand the boundaries of modern funk without losing the essence of what funk is about. This release stays true to mantra.
