RIYL: Paul Orwell, Low Cut Connie, Tom Jones, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

Label: Heavy Soul

Mods are go!

The Shoots is a new collaboration between time traveling 60’s guitarist Paul Orwell and vocalist Lord Essien, and it’s a serious soul stompin’ garage tune that’s reminiscent of old Tom Jones or even Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

The single is limited to just 300 copies featuring 4 Prong push out centers(sometimes called UK centers) and a wavey edged company sleeve. I’m so very grateful that on Paul’s most recent visit back to his original timeline he was able to score some of these killer wave cut record sleeves and fit them in his time machine for the save travel back to 2017.

This is the real deal, and if sales of Paul Orwell records are any indication then you better jump on this one now, right now, before you have to find one on your least favorite auction site.

And hey, if you want to buy one for me just let me know. I’d be more than happy to provide you with my mailing address.
