Description

Glenn Fallows (aka Ed Meme) has been the main songwriter, bandleader, manager, guitarist and Hammond organist for funk, soul and breaks collective The Impellers for the last 5 years, releasing albums on Freestyle Records, Mocambo Records and Legere Recordings. In 2012, an over-productive mind and too much time on his hands left him with far too many songs to release with the band so to remedy this, a solo project was born - Ed Meme

"Oh Yes I Will" on the side A is proper dancefloor business, underpinned by a sweet vocal by Myles Sanko. This track is a two-beat beast beginning with a swingy, Motown-influenced groove up against scratchy guitars and sweet vocal harmonies. The track builds and builds via a heavy drums break and ends in fiece style with a heavy, driving, deep funk workout on the outro.

"You Do Say Parts 1 and 2" on the flipside is an afro and latin-influenced instrumental track that kicks off like a classic funk 45 b-sider. It ends up almost on a dub tip and along the way gives us sunshine melodies, sparse-but-booming basslines and a latin-jazz fusion outro featuring trademark layered alto sax craziness from Chris Evans-Roberts (The Impellers).
