ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After 6 years on the road and two studio albums ("Swingin' Sixties" – 2004 - and "Shake It!" –2006), The Pepper Pots return with a new and brilliant album: “NOW!”
“NOW!” is another step forward in their search of Soul sound. Produced by Binky Griptite (Sharon Jones, Dap Kings, Amy Winehouse), the album has been recorded at Musiclan Studios (Spain) and Dubway Studios (Manhattan, USA), analogically mixed in Brooklyn and mastered at the Trutone Mastering Labs in New York. The new Pepper Pots sound offers a modern vision of Motown, Stax or Studio One.
The Pepper Pots made a choice on the “old school” sound and look, with a strong influence from classic Soul and Jamaican music. The band has toured around Europe many times. France, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Finland, Austria, Russia, England are some of the countries where they have performed. They even have toured around Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Okayama, Nagoya, Fukuoka).
They have also performed in the most important European festivals: Riversite Stomp Air Festival 2007 (Mainz-Germany), 22nd SummerJam Reggae Festival 2007 (Cologne-Germany), Rototom Sunsplash European Reggae Festival 2007 (Usoppo-Italy), Rock for People 2007, RudeCat Festival and Black Music Festival… The Pepper Pots has been invited to the South by Southwest Festival 2009 (Austin, Texas), where they started a tour in the United States, playing 8 dates in the West Coast.
The Pepper Pots are ready to introduce the new album, “NOW!”, to all their fans around the world, an album which will be supported by a documentary about the recording of the album.

The Pepper Pots are:
Adriana Prunell, Mercè Munné, Marina Torres: Vocals - Joan Vergés: Drums - Joan Barrientos: Bass - Lluís Rodríguez: Guitar - Ireneu Grosset: Keyboards - Tomy Muñoz: Tenor sax - Gerard Cifra: Baritone sax - Roger Montsant: Trumpet - Isidro Palmada: Trombone

A MESSAGE FROM BINKY GRIPTITE, PRODUCER:
Soul is the sound heard around the world. Some cities like Detroit, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and Brooklyn have become well known as exporters of soul. Now we may add one more city to that list; Girona.
Just an hour or so from Barcelona, the 11 young ladies and gentlemen that are The Pepper Pots have been doing what hip kids everywhere have been doing for years- loving soul records. They have been sitting by their turntables, listening and learning from the masters like Marvin, Diana, Billy, Otis, Jackie, Curtis, Sharon, Sam, Smokey…the list is LONG! But loving soul records is not a passive experience. Eventually one will want to show one’s love of soul records by making soul records. And with “Now”, the Pepper Pots will show you what they have learned.
The Pepper Pots are not new to the scene. They are old pros. They have been touring and making records for years. On their first two releases they showed us their love and devotion to the early Jamaican Ska sound. But with this latest LP, “Now”, they show us all that we Americans do not have a monopoly on this phenomenon called Soul Music. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Don’t worry though, they have not forgotten their roots, this album has Jamaican sounds too!
Let me introduce you to the girls. Let’s start with Marina “Vabyface” Torres. With her lush falsetto tones it is no wonder that she found her “Dream Guy”. Adriana, the dark mysterious one that loves music and fears fame, after you hear “You’re Still in My Mind”, it will be her voice that is in your mind. And Mercè, the sensitive one with the notebook full of poems, she is the one that believes in Love and will “Keep Waiting” no matter how long it takes!
As for the band, I could go on and on about Joan, Joan, Luiggi, Ireneu, Gerard, Tomy, Patu, and Roger, but you would do best to get this record onto the nearest turntable and let these guys speak for themselves.
So to music lovers everywhere I have good news; the best record you’ve heard in a long time is here and it’s “Now”. To Adriana, the one who does not want to be famous, I have some bad news…

Peters at CD Baby


What a marvelous take on 60's girl groups, from Barcelona's Pepper Pots. While their previous album was a fun homage to 60s ska and rocksteady, this spends most of its time exploring the pop sounds that made the Motown/Stax era so unique. Produced by New Yorker Binky Griptite, known for his work with Sharon Jones & Dap Kings and Amy Winhouse, this album has a classic sound, recalling luminaries like Martha & the Vandellas or The Supremes. With three ladies sharing lead vocals and an eight-member band, the songs have a full (yet never muddy) sound. Their songs are irresistible, so stop reading this and start listening now!
