Crazy / #LiarsAndCheaters

A 2 track funk single (8m 5s) — released April 28th 2014 on Record Kicks

Steve White (The Style Council) and Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene / Paul Weller) Mod funk Supergroup TRIO VALORE is back with a super limited edition 45 (500 copies worldwide).

Featuring two of the best musicians that the UK has to offer Steve White on drums (The Style Council, Paul Weller, Ian Dury , Jon Lord , The Who at Live Aid) Steve was also recently voted no 2 of the UKs greatest drummers by the influential Rhtyhm magazine and original Ocean Colour Scene founder Damon Minchella on bass (Paul Weller, The Who at Live Aid, Richard Ashcroft) TRIO VALORE is back with a new limited edition 45 featuring a mod jazz cover up of smashing hit Crazy and the brand new original floorshaking cut #LiarsAndCheaters.

Trio Valore released the widely acclaimed album "Return of the Iron Monkey" in 2008. Now after a musical sabbatical, the guys are back having gained a new member, Manchester based Keyboard ace Justin Shearn (Sam Gray). The band reformed after they've been asked to play at Record Kicks 10th Anniversary at 100 club in London last November and since then the Trio went from strength to strength playing shows throughout 2013 and beginning of 2014. After such a great response it was only a matter of time before some new music was recorded. This 45 is the heavily awaited result. With special guests such as Jan Van Duikeren and Jacko Peake (Paul Weller band and push ), Guido Nijs and Paolo Fuschi the 45 features classic organ based groove and some fantastic playing.

The limited edition 45 feature Crazy on the A side - the Trio's take on a Modern Club Classic, very much in the Style of a Booker T cover, an of the day pop smash, soaring organ and tasteful brass make this destined for clubs globally . On teh flipside #LiarsandCheaters, a full on funk blaster, break beats galore and thunderous bass underpin some truly fantastic soloing, an instant club floor filler , written by the Trio and produced by the band and Gaz Vaughn Hadfield in Manchester. Double sider 45 essential for all mod and funk dancefloors. Welcome back Trio Valore!

With Steve White behind the drum kit and Damon Minchella on Fender jazz bass, it's a rhythm section unsurpassed which alternates between r'n'b, funk, rock and jazz in a furious live set, playing the type of grooves that no doubt the legendary fusion masters Larry and Fonce Mizell would have loved to have produced. It's a quality of musicianship from a bygone era, right here and right now. - Jason Holmes Huffington Post
