This new 7” on Brooklyn’s Bastard Jazz Recordings is Fabulous’ first new material since Melodies, and picks right up where the album left off. On the A-Side, “Things I Like To Do” is a feel good stomper with fuzzed out organ stabs, a bubbling bass, a stuttering stripped down live break and a soaring horn section. On the flip, “Long Time No See”, (caned by both Gilles Peterson and Rob Da Bank on their BBC Radio 1shows) brings in more sunshine with it’s big Boogaloo vibes – heavy on the handclaps, Latin percussion, voical chants and blurts, and horns and flutes galore…. with just a hint of 70s Blaxploitation lurking in the background.
