The Naked Citizens ft Suzi Chunk – Space Touring

14 years ago, around this time of year, I performed at Glastonbury for the very first time. It was as a rapper rather than a DJ, myself and life long partner in crime Dregz were guest vocalists with a funk band called Dark Chunk on the ‘Dance Stage’ (way before Silver Hayes, Arcadia or the current south east corner residents), we also provided vocals for a contemporary dance piece with Reform Dance in the Theatre & Circus tent. The reason I’m saying this now is because the above video features the original powerhouse vocalist from Dark Chunk – Suzi Chunk.

It’s the debut single from Cardiff based group The Naked Citizens, a space / cosmic / Italo disco track that sounds like it was plucked straight from the late 70s, a little like a track Spiller might have been listening to when they made ‘Groovejet’ and it suits Suzi’s vocals perfectly. A more demure version of her than the funk fueled force I used to know, but delivered with just as much strength as ease.

There is more music planned with some of the city’s other local heroes on vocal duty, but for now you can pick up this track here (iTunes) or here (Amazon).
