UK funk/soul kings The Haggis Horns are back after three years with a new single taken from their forthcoming 5th studio album “Stand Up For Love”. This first single is a full-on instrumental funk banger called “Haggis Express” and it is pure dirty funk at it’s best, with deep in-the-pocket drums and bass groove, scratchy funk guitar, a fiery hammond organ solo, latin fire congas and a horn section so sharp you could shave with their riffs. Dancefloor gold for sure whether you’re a funk brother, soul sister or head spinning, windmilling b-boy/b-girl.
Featuring some of the finest brass and rhythm section players in the UK, Haggis Horns musicians have played live and recorded with a host of major music artists including Mark Ronson, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lou Donaldson, Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Martha Reeves, Jamiroquai, John Legend & The Roots, The Cinematic Orchestra, Morcheeba, Roots Manuva, Finley Quaye and Nightmares On Wax.
Two decades on, numerous releases, hundreds of gigs worldwide, The Haggis Horns are still kings of the hill when it comes to UK funk and soul.
