It’s a sonic, psychedelic road trip through reggae, rock, country, electronica, blues, house, surf, dub, disco and beyond. It’s quite a ride. Their debut single Rock The Joint ft. Beardyman clocked up over 200,000 YouTube views.
The album features a eclectic array of collaborations with some of today’s most diverse musical cohorts including Beardyman, Lampchop frontman Kurt Wagner, KLF/Mad Professor, multi-instrumentalist Black Steel, Bristolian Queen of visceral country-punk and rockabilly Emily Breeze, Mr. Hermano/Sao Benitez, drummer/percussionist Ben Mitchell and MC Brother Culture of Manasseh Hi-Fi and Asian Dub Foundation.
Wild Rumpus’ debut album, Musical Blaze-Up, will be available from 2 June.
