Alabama 3 make Sweet Pretty Muthafunkin’ Country Acid House Music. They’re not from Alabama, and there ain’t three of them.

Nope. They’re from Brixton, and the fellas that did that Soprano’s theme tune, “That tune bought someone a swimming pool, but it sure wasn’t any of us…”.

Alabama 3 is a pop band, a punk rock, blues and country techno situationist crypto-Marxist-Leninist electro band. No X Factor or Pop Idol – they did it the old-fashioned way in 1996, throwing a big old party with a fistful of blotters and half a dozen disco biscuits.

Never needing a self-appointed quango of jaded vampires to tell ‘em how to sing the blues… they got MOJO. The power to raise the dead. And Geffen records bought it for a million dollars. Half the advance went on contraband, the rest on a brilliant situationist masterpiece ‘Exile on Coldharbour Lane’.

And still they say, “We want to make you feel good. We know you’ve had trouble in your life, real bad trouble. We know you’ve got debts. We know you’ve had your heart broken so many times there’s still pieces on your pillow. Maybe you’ve done some good things, maybe some bad things. We forgive you. Forgive yourself. Then dress up real sexy and come and party with us. We’ll look after you”.

“And as ministers in the First Presleyterian Church of Elvis the Divine, we know the party ain’t never over. Not ‘til you’re sitting on the toilet in a big nappy with a rancid quarter pounder in your, fat, cold, dead, emerald-encrusted hand. We’ve been skint and we’ve been minted but we’re never gonna stop”.

That’s a promise…
