We are absolutely delighted to be the world’s first media outlet to premiere the new single from LA reggae heroes The Expanders.
The single, Put Those Fools, is a cover of an original track by The Tidals. It comes from The Expanders’ new album, due for release 29th September through Easy Star Records and to be called Old Time Something Come Back Again, Volume 2. The album is the second in their cover series of records.
Devin Morrison (vocals and rhythm guitar) told us that “Put Those Fools is a Phil Pratt production released in the mid 70s on the Sun Shot label. The tune was written and sung by a pretty obscure Jamaican vocal group called The Tidals. We decided to cover this tune primarily because of the heavy heavy groove. This is the kind of riddim we love.”
