Hot 8 Brass Band

Bottom Of The Bucket

Tru Thoughts
As a concept the Hot 8 brass band are great. They have a brilliant USP, a great back-story and they are undoubtedly fantastic musicians. On the plus side with such a distinctive USP you certainly know a Hot 8 track when you hear it, on the flip side however things can wear a bit thin when every song sounds like the last — give or take a bit of tinkering with arrangement melody or tempo. The result is an unfortunate mix of familiarity, contempt and boredom.
