We’re pleased to announce that Mr. Chop has teamed up with the 5 Day Weekend label – they behind last year’s For Pete’s Sake album – for another bugged-out excursion into the realms of psych-funk. Switched On – Chop’s Moog-synthesizer driven album of classic funk, soul and rock “breakbeat” covers – comes out on October 11th. The album features Malcolm Catto (drums) and Jake Ferguson (bass) of our Heliocentrics.
Available now is the 9″ (yes, you read that right) single pictured above: Chop’s take on Can’s “Vitamin C” and the Jimi Hendrix/Curtis Knight obscurity “Happy Birthday.” We’re offering a download of the latter – one of our Switched On favorites – below, alongside a sneak peak of the packaging for the CD.
