After reading Jody Gillett’s excellent piece on wwww.mondomix.com about how a band of South London brothers called United Vibrations took the riot torn streets, to deliver their own spiritual “12Tone” jazz message of “galaxies not ghettos, equilibrium not domination, deeds not empty words”, I went on to check the spoken word of Kate Tempest – one of their regular collaborators. I was blown away and conceded that I need to get out more!
This is Kate performing at One Taste! She is one third of Sound Of Rum – their album ‘Balance’ is out on Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best label and checking her myspace and listening to Wu Tang inspired ‘do wot u must do’ it sounds like there’s a solo LP ready to roll.
