Artist Info: Since their glorious debut, As We Do Our Thing, arrived with a bang and introduced the world to Bristol’s favorite sons, The Allergies' lives have consisted of a tireless schedule of non-stop party rocking across Europe, and mixing up funky concoctions in the studio in between tours.
The prolific duo has established themselves at the top table of funk, soul and hip-hop, with their spicy fusion of breaks. Taking classic sounds and reshaping them for the modern dancefloor is what they do, and nobody does it better…
The proof is in the pudding. To date they have not one, but two ‘BBC 6Music Album of the Day’ awards, support from the likes of Mixmag, The Observer, IDJ, We Plug Good Music, and a barrage of radio champions behind them, as well as multiple appearances across the BBC on 6Music and Radio 2 and 4.
Their third full-length album, Steal The Show, is a continuation of this momentum with the guys expanding even further on their sonic palette—More vocal features, more live instrumentation, and of course more funk!
Some familiar faces return to the fold with Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling), Dr Syntax (The Mouse Outfit, Foreign Beggars) and Honey LaRochelle all contributing their vocal talents to the tasty beats served up by these chaps.
But the fun doesn’t stop there as the guys also bring in recent DOOM collaborators ASM, Fun Lovin’ Criminal Uncle Frank, MC extraordinaire Skunkadelic, and soul/blues vocal powerhouse Izo FitzRoy to come join the party.
Good things come in threes, and the third album by The Allergies is a stone-cold, floor-filling, must have record whether you're a new listener, or have already been converted to their funky gospel.
