THE YOUNG PHILADELPHIANS
LIVE IN TOKYO
US RECORD RELEASE JULY 29 on Yellowbird
At long last the US release of The Young Philadelphian's Live in Tokyo will finally hit the streets July 29th! (Out now on Yellowbird in Europe & P-Vine in Japan) It will be available on CD, Vinyl and Digital formats.
Jamaaladeen Tacuma, G. Calvin Weston, Mary Halvorson, Marc Ribot: 4 professional, harmolodic noise improvisers with an uncommon love of Philly soul and hard groove. Forever young, forever Philadelphian, forever fixated on the moment before dance went digital. Stuck in the groove like a scratch in your favorite record. Ladies and Gentlemen…the hardest working musicians in punk/funk/soul/noise: The Young Philadelphians!!!
The Young Philadelphians pays tribute to twin legacies: The mind-blowing harmolodic punk-funk of Ornette Coleman's first Prime Time band and the sweet, optimistic pulse of 1970s Philly Soul. Ribot enlists bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma and drummer G. Calvin Weston, both Prime Time alumni and Philadelphia natives, along with guitarist Mary Halvorson plus a newly added 3-piece string section to do the job.
Track list includes classics such as The Hustle, Love Rollarcoaster and TSOP.
