Background to single
Rock, Rock, Rock was not an early piece of work by the band but grew up in the around March 2007 and was an instant success when reviewed on Broadjam where it was aired with two other songs from the LP. The reviews were good with the song making it into the "Electronica - Electronic" Top Ten at No. 6 in September 2007 despite the song not really being electronica, it just doesn't fit too well under jazz or soul or house or dance or well... whatever! It's probably more catchy pop with a fusion of funk and soul!
Track 2 is the first of two remixes by John Steen. The Hard Rock Remix was only recently completed (October 2007) and is yet another concoction of subtle Spanish guitars and synth-drum rhythms that merge into a finale of heavy rock guitar played out across the final two verses. The sound is a little familiar of Prince circa 1985 or even Parliament funk so play the bass heavy!
Track 3 is by COAB's own Chris Sakes and is another take on the smoothness of this song with a lilting dancehall percussion and dub-like bass that echo that catchy set of reggae moves. This Dancehall Remix has Kingston or a sunny Trinidadian beach sound played across it with those cute cuts of the original song slipping in here and there and more Farfisa organ sound cutting across the piece. Some additional female vocals and a male mash-up voice add to the piece. Think Chaka Demus & Pliers, think dancehall remix!
Track 4 is the second of John's remixes with the Lounge Lizard Remix. This also a little slow like the previous remix but develops nicely with a heavy bass vocals layered in alongside the female backing vocals that float in and out as the song builds in a mellow way towards the playful organ response in the middle.
Track 5 introduces you to the Trancel8r! The newest signing to the Manor Records, this dude has been hiding in his studio cooking up techno and trance tunes for the masses or maybe just his best friends!? Here, the Trancel8r gets to play around with some electronics in his Bleep Remix, adding a menacing synth or two and taking the track a little further on with some trance-like arpeggios in the middle section. This guy is worth looking out for!
