Dr. Who (Version)/ Dr. Who
7" Vinyl Single Record
Since 2002, Smerins Anti-Social Club have been keeping crowds jumping with their acclaimed performances in packed-out venues and muddy fields across the United Kingdom. Now the Bristol-based eight-piece have teamed up with Tru Thoughts records to release an ultra-dubby version of live favourite, Doctor Who. An instrumental take of the track is already available on Tru Thoughts' latest Shapes compilation, while the single, featuring guest vocalist Tenor Fly (Freestylers, Congo Natty), will be released in early 2011. The track, produced by John Hendicott, has already been picked up by DJs such as Don Letts and Rob da Bank, and has found its way onto BBC Radio 1 & 2, 6 Music and BBC Asian Network, confirming the far-reaching appeal of a band who have played with acts as diverse as reggae legend Horace Andy and outrageous hardrockers the Darkness. Smerins Anti-Social Club's live show owes much of its success to the band's unique energy, which comes from mashing together a wide range of influences - from 'thirties swing to heavy dub, funk and drum'n'bass - and playing out the resulting sound with a combination of skilled musicianship and punk-rock attitude.
