The Canary Sect "Shake It, But Don't Break It" 2006
Here's a brandnew band from Spain that will surely let the mods dance and the rockers roll. When Manuel Navarro and Pablo Jimenez decided to form the CANRAY SECT in Barcelona in the spring of 2003 to keep the spirit of truly authentic rhythm'n'blues alive, they never thought that this band would soon become the hottest beat sensation Europe has to offer these days.
The CANARY SECT combine the essences of traditional UK mid-sixties r'n'b, made famous by bands like the WHO, the DOWNLINER SECT, the SMALL FACES, the PRETTY THINGS and the BIRDS and the classic US soul and blues brilliance of legends like Howlin' Wolf, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker and come up with a whole set of hip-shakin' beat monsters, recorded and produced at Circo Perrotti studios in Gijon by the 'wizzard of fuzz', Jorge 'Dr.Explosion' Munoz, which can all be found on their debut-album 'Shake it, but don't break it'. Driven by the wailin' harmonica of singer Manuel Navarro, the five-piece that consists of (ex)-members of some of the finest spanish garage-bands of the past 20 years, such as LOS NEGATIVOS
, LES CACTUS, the BORN LOSERS and LOS WALKYSONS will be seen in action at an all-nighter near you shortly. Just listen to their incredibe version of the old YARDBIRDS raver 'Stroll on' and the stompin' beat of the furious title track 'Shake it, but don't break it' and you know what we're talking about. It will make you shiver, like it did when we first heard it. from Soundflat:
