This is instrumental punk funk. Everyone knows what a Power Trio is, right? Except for this one, which is keys, drums and trumpet! Hudes writes the music, Bob Riley adds and subtracts time and Rik Albani plays trumpet like you’re not supposed to.
Hudes was born with her heart in the classics (The Three B’s). Her creative soul leaped into the deep end of the New York New Wave. Teamed with Albani and Riley she mashed up the funk, rock and noise of the world around her to yield one of the most innovative bands and sounds
‘I Love You Madly’ is a jump up party.
‘Chrome’ creates mystery and intrigue. Here come the cops.
‘Century XXI’ is lightening in a bottle. Trumpet doesn’t do that.
‘Antigua’…kick back cuz it’s 420 in the Caribbean.
'Hi Top' is a paean to funky fun.
