- Italian Playboys includes nine original songs from the classic 6T's beat styled title track to the introspective After and Once Again, along with a selection of rarely attempted covers including the heavy funk of Jon Lord on Rubber Monkey, an uplifting interpretation of Jack McDuff's Briar Patch (an alternate version will also appear on the forthcoming McDuff tribute album from Scufflin' Records), and a scorching slice out of the library classic Move, Move, Move.
- Italian Playboys also features Doug Roberson of mod fave The Diplomats of Solid Sound (USA) on guitar for Portofino Vespa Rider, Eddie Roberts of deep funk superstars The New Mastersounds (UK) on sitar for Spider Baby, and DJ extraordinaire Ninfa (Irma Records Mo'Plen series) lending her vocal talents to the Gus Gus hit Ladyshave and released as a single on Record Kicks (October 5).
- Italian Playboys follows the seminal Beat.It (2002, Hammondbeat), two USA tours with the last stop headlining the world reknowned MODchicago weekender, numerous European festivals, and several score contributions to 6T's spy-revivalist film Wilson Chance (2004, Bunzendahl Brothers, USA) and soundtrack counterpart Wilson Chance: The Sound of Danger (2004, Hammondbeat).
- Italian Playboys songs have already been featured this summer on the BBC's Mark Radcliffe and Craig Charles radio shows, and the indication from the fantastic reviews The Link Quartet have consistently received both on record and on stage, you are encouraged to expect this latest to blow you away to a new funky place.

BEAT.IT

Price: $13.95

"Beat.It" is raw 60's drenched fuel to feed a world dominated by an otherwise anemic and bland soundscape. How Hammond organ funk is meant to be heard.

"Beat.It" is raw 60's drenched fuel to feed a world dominated by an otherwise anemic and bland soundscape. How Hammond organ funk is meant to be heard."Beat.It" is also the sound for the 2004 motion picture "Wilson Chance" (Bunzendahl Brothers Productions), which provided 5 songs to sit side-by-side with a fresh score by 007 guitar legend Vic Flick. And if that wasn't enough, the meeting of the Link Quartet, Hammondbeat, and Wilson Chance has resulted in a special soundtrack album ("The Sound of Danger", March 2, 2004) featuring over 70 minutes of new music!The Link Quartet have arrived! Following their second US tour in June 2004 (capped by the massive ModChicago event) and the completion of their next album, the boys are taking the summer off and preparing a revamped live set with the new record front and center. A return trip to the US is being planned for Spring 2005. Buy "Beat.It", the album that started it all, and is still finding new worlds to conquer - let one of them be yours!!
