We’re serving up one of your five a day in the shape of ‘Hotdog Jive’, a new tune from Manchester’s own Fruit Tones.
Just before they head off to the USofA to play some shows (tour dates below), the trio fired over ‘Hotdog Jive’ (order your copy here) for us to premiere for you. The track is lifted from the band’s upcoming EP Ripe and Ready, which is due for release on the 17th March via Greenway Records/Fuzzkill Records. Recorded live on reel to reel with nods to the likes of The Sonics, The Mummies and King Khan. You could say it’s a real greasy groover.
Here’s a quote about ‘Hotdog Jive’ from Fruit Tones bassist Fruity Dom:
You can Mash Potato. You can do the Twist. But can you do the HDJ? Didn’t think so. Do you even sausage, bro? Learn all the right moves. Buy the suitable condiments. Get on board with the Cha Cha Slide for the nu garage explosion generation.
