The Haggis Horns
Mr Ronson isn’t alone in his high opinion of The Haggis Horns. Over the last few years they have lent their lungs to recordings and live shows for everyone from Corinne Bailey Rae and Amy Winehouse to Nightmares On Wax and Lou Donaldson. They first came to prominence through their part in the seminal Keb Darge presents The New Mastersounds album on BBE Records. An integral part of the burgeoning UK funk scene, the last few years have seen the band cement their reputation through singles “Hot Damn!” and “The Traveller”, with debut album ‘Hot Damn!’ winning even more fans including Gilles Peterson, Quantic, The Fatback Band, Mr Scruff and Nostalgia 77.
After the tragic loss of founder member Jason Rae early in 2008, the boys have hit the studio working on a follow up to ‘Hot Damn!’ They have recently teamed up with singer Nia Saw (a.k.a. Lucinda Slim) who has performed around the world with the likes of Zap Mama but who is also a funk aficionado, DJ’ing alongside Keb Darge at their long established Deep Funk night at Madame Jojo’s in London’s Soho. They released their 2nd album ‘Keep On Movin’ in 2010 and continue to gig relentlessly, showcasing of their own brand of ass-shaking, dancefloor breaks at their now legendary live shows.
