The Schizophonics Soul Revue
The Magnificent are eight Hollywood rock-scene veterans who have previously hidden their secret love for powerhouse rhythm and blues, but now reveal it to the world in a savage show. The band’s songbook is loaded with deep-in-the-crates soul gems from the mid-sixties to the early seventies. Playing choice selections from the likes of Solomon Burke, Rex Garvin and Big Mama Thornton, the band rearranges the songs to showcase their individual specialties, while keeping the essentials of the material in place, particularly the non-stop danceable rhythms.
The Magnificent have recently recorded an EP including original material alongside covers from the likes of Eddie Floyd, Janis Joplin, and the Knight Brothers. Recorded at Kitten Robot studio in Historic Filipinotown with Paul Roessler (Screamers, Twisted Roots), the tracks were mastered by soul veteran Rodney Mills at his Masterhouse lab in Atlanta. Rodney’s track record includes sessions with soul godfathers such as the Meters, James Brown and George Clinton.
With two frenetic front men backed by a six-man wrecking crew and two torso-twisting go-go dancers, the Magnificent are a revue to be reckoned with, a red-hot retro blast of shotgun soul.
