Describe:Schwab Music is a large piece of swampfunk, a pound of electrosoul and a pint of boogie rock but here’s what clever folk write:|Single reviews:| “ A new east London 5-piece from East London that are so dripping in retro soul and funk, yet are supercharged with a colossal rocket of fuzz. David Holmes would kill to make music like this.”|Chris (Rough Trade Best of 2004 compilation sleeve notes)|“Dog-rough guitars, a good tune…a short welcome blast of reckless rock’n’roll fun. ” -Sharon O’Connell Timeout|“If you like all-nighters that play frantic Psych rock, northern soul stompers and high energy rock’n’roll and you’re also fond of a witty lyric, then this is right up your alley“ - Stuart Turnbull Sleazenation|Schwab live reviews:|“. . .there are no musical boundaries in Schwab’s world. The preacherman delivery. . . rumbling bass grooves, deliciously funky guitar licks. . .hip-hop beats. . assorted samples and drones . . . comprise their relentless block-rocking party tunes.” - Notting Hill Arts Club Rota Sessions; Oct 2004.
