Little Barrie - We Are Little Barrie Review
by Gary Schwind

.
OK, I'll admit it. I'm hooked on the retro sound produced by bands like Little Barrie, The Blue Van and Jarvis Humby. Little Barrie is another example of a band that pumps out sounds of the 60s and 70s. I think what makes bands like Little Barrie different from other "retro" bands is that you can tell these guys actually explored the music of decades past. Actually, to say they explored music of decades past is probably a gross understatement. These guys sound like they immersed themselves in albums by bands like Flamin' Groovies, Booker T and the MGs, and various funk and soul acts.

Little Barrie kicks off the album with the speaker-rumbling bass line and drums of "Free Salute." The intro of the song sounds similar to "It's Your Thing" by The Isley Brothers and the wide-open drum sound really reminds me of The Blue Van.

This album is packed with some super-funky guitar and bass. You can hear the funk influence throughout the album but some of the best examples are in "Burned Out" and "Please Tell Me." The band also busts out some funky bluesy grooves on "Well and Truly Done" as well as some groovy psychedelic guitar on "Stones Throw.'

There isn't a real weakness to be found on this album, which is especially impressive because this is their debut. Barrie Cadogan provides strong vocals and guitar work. The rhythm section is lights-out with Wayne Fullwood on drums and Lewis Wharton channeling Bootsy Collins on the bass. If you, like me, have been hooked on the retro sound, this album will be an excellent addition to your collection.
