TYRONE TURTLE & THE STEADY ROCKERS “The Fabulous Sounds of….” LP – Beautiful Brazilian ska/reggae vinyl debut!

SCREAMING RECORDS very first LP is a wicked 7 tracker from the young Brazilian act TYRONE TURTLE & THE STEADY ROCKERS! Not many are familiar with TYRONE TURTLE & TSR but that is soon about to change. The ambitious 6-piece, spearheaded by Argentina-born singer and key songwriter Diego Sanchez, spent the year of 2021 releasing six singles and establishing a name for themselves  worldwide!  Six very different tunes ranging from the storming, upbeat instrumental ska-track “Franco Nero” to the captivating love song “In Your Eyes”, to the happy go lucky “Drunk & Dancing” as well as the amazing Paul Anka-cover rendition of “Diana”.  All of  these singles plus the exclusive dub-version of “In Your Eyes” are on this debut vinyl release. “The Fabulous Sounds of …” is truly a traditional, authentic blend of ska and rocksteady, and reggae mixed with a variety of Brazilian styles and instruments; standout track is the beautiful “Minha” with its samba-infused feel and Brazilian instrumentation.  Songs are mixed by Roger Rivas (The Aggrolites) in Los Angeles and Jayson Nugent (The Slackers) in New York respectively – and Victor Rice has made the In Your Eyes dub-version entitled “In Your Dub” from his NYC studio. Limited to 300 copies, our allotment will surely go fast!

 

THE INCITERS “Doing Fine” LP vinyl (clear) – Grover repress of a Jump Up classic from 2000!

We decided to bring in this limited edition clear vinyl repress when THE INCITERS booked a tour with DEAL’S GONE SLACK! We also realized many fans missed out when we had the last pressing a handful of years ago.  Let’s say we don’t carry much soul anymore now that it’s a big thing (can you believe when we released “Doing Fine” in 2000 there wasn’t any other label in the USA interested in touching a modern soul project!!!). At long last, the great 2nd album by San Francisco’s finest northern soul combo is back on wax, 250 copies on transparent 180g vinyl!  Don’t delay!

A1 Manifesto   A2 Gonna Watch My Step  A3 Dynamite Exploded  A4 The Hurt   A5 Lay This Burden Down  A6 Me, Myself & I   A7 Just Look What You´ve Done
B1 Doing Fine  B2 Magic Touch   B3 Look My Way   B4 Lean On Me   B5 End Of Our Love  B6 The Inciter
