Funky Israel: The Apples

While checking Reck's myspace if there were any new tracks (I know he's working on some stuff), I saw a post about a band playing at Club Bugalu called The Apples, "a 9-piece band hailing from Israel, weaving traditional Jewish klezmer and big band jazz into raw funk rhythm patterns and scratch routines. The band has developed an eclectic approach on funk, playing with four horns, two djs, double bass, drums and a MixMonster. The album 'Attention!' for Freestyle Records got them onto the international deepfunk circuit, their fresh version of Rage Against The Machine's "Killing in the name of..." becoming a long running gig favourite. The Apples live performances have audiences dancing and laughing from the get go!"

From what I've heard on their site and myspace page, I think that live they could very well rock. They'll be playing in Belgium the 9th and 10th of November. Unfortunately I can't go, but let's hope they'll come back in the near future.
