about

On June 9th 2015, Nick Pride & The Pimptones visited Old School Studios, Norwich, to record a live session for Break Thru Radio. The studio uses analogue equipment, vintage mics and valve preamps, and specialises in recording "live" direct to reel to reel.

The session featured songs from The Pimptones' albums "Midnight Feast of Jazz" (2011), "Rejuiced Phat Shake" (2014) plus plenty of new and unreleased material. Everything was performed live, no headphones, no overdubs, one take, straight to tape.

The Pimptones’ sound is a combination of funky grooves, beefy breaks and blue eyed soul music.

Their slick arrangements have all the harmonic sophistication that the jazz cats love, delivered with a heavyweight punch that keeps the dance floor moving.

Track Name: Sweetness and Light
Sweetness and Light
Need I remind you how we started?
Well let me break it down again
You were every girl’s dream, you’re my lover and my best friend
The day that we met, how you were sweetness and light
You would walk a mile before you’d fuss and fight
Does that mean nothing at all or is it ringing a bell?

Now every day a different story
Every day a reason why
Today ain’t the day, that you can even get up and try
Now every night you’ve got your friends stopping by
I’ll be at work, while you’re getting high
Does that mean nothing at all or is it ringing a bell?

And if it’s all the same to you baby
You know you wanna, you know you should
You know that you can make me feel real good (hey hey)

So baby is this what you wanted?
Is this the way it’s gonna be?
It’s good enough for you but it’s not good enough for me
In the church you swore, with all of your heart
We’d love each other, till death do us part
Does that mean nothing at all? does that mean nothing at all?
Does that mean nothing at all or is it ringing a bell?

Be my sweetness, be my light
Be my sweetness, make everything alright
Track Name: Give It To Me
Give It To Me

Get down to business baby, shake your rump
Don’t hold it back like you be savin’ it up
What’s in your locker, let me see what you got
If you be bringing it then give me the lot

If you got it
You got to give it to me
If you got it
You got to give it to me

Don’t keep those cards pressed right up close to your chest
Give me you’re A-game baby give me your best
Don’t you be worryin’ bout the who why and how
Boy there ain’t nothin’ but the here and the now

If you got it
You got to give it to me
If you got it
You got to give it to me

And when you gimme some, gotta gimme some more
Track Name: Hex On My Soul
Hex On My Soul

I try to do right, but i always do wrong
I try to hold on to loving so tight that it's already gone
No words to console, they're already old
But the pain left a scar, a whole in my heart
An ache in my being, a hex on my soul

I'm holding the fort, I'm serving my king
I'd go to war without even a thought for the hurt it would bring
When i acted unkind, I paid it no mind
But what goes around comes back around
Tracking me down like a hex on my soul
Track Name: If You Ain't
If You Ain't

If you ain’t got a man of your own Then take your dirty little hands off mine I know what you’re doin, you’re dancing up to him And doing your little Bump and Grind Wind that bootie all you want, girl you’re wasting your time If you ain’t got a man of your own Then take your dirty little eyes off mine I know what you’re scheming, but girl you be dreaming If you think he’s gonna give you the time You’re being discreet, but sister you’re on a mission You came to compete, but you ain’t no competition I’ll show you over to the door and kiss your sorry little ass goodnight (instrumental) If you ain’t got a man of your own Then keep your dirty little mind off mine I know what you’re after, but girl you gon’ haffta Go ahead and join the back of the line Your bed’s been made, so go on and lay in I’ve already played, all the games that you’re playing If you ain’t got a man of your own (Lower) Then take your dirty little… your nasty little… your skanky little… Your dirty little hands off mine
Track Name: Waitin' So Long
Waitin' So Long

I’ve been waiting so long, so hard
So much time passing by since we’re apart
All my loving you left behind
I count the days till you change your mind
I’ve been waiting so long, so hard

I’ve been searching so long, so hard
Trying to find, my love, where you are
I’ve been trying everywhere
My heart breaks when you’re just not there
I’ve been searching so long, so hard

Well you can find me in the club
Tyring to drown my woes
And get my head around the way love comes and the way it goes
Well you can find me in the street
Going from place to place
And I’ll be checking every passer-by till I see your face
And if you bring it on home to me
You’ll see how sorry a girl can be
There ain’t no way to survive what I’m feeling inside

I’ve been prayin so long, so hard
Trying to find, My Lord, where you are
On bended knees I ask you please
His safe return is all I need
I’ve been prayin so long, so hard
So long, so hard
So long, so hard
So long, so hard
