Review: The Allergies – Get Yourself Some / I’m On It
2020 saw the Allergies unleashing their summer-saving album Say The Word, their best album to date. Its two previous single releases have been monsters; Felony which blasted from every UK radio station of note and the full throttle Latin mash up with Cuban Brothers Let them Know.
It seemed only a matter of time before Get Yourself Some got thrown into the spotlight. Put this 7” on the deck and those not in the know will mistake this slice of southern stomping blues-funk as coming from some forgotten outfit on a label lost to time. However, the Bristol Duo and the tallest Ugly Duckling ever to take to water (Andy Cooper) have created an homage to their influences while keeping a foot firmly in the present.
Dr Syntax and Skunkadelic beef up the hip hop on I’m On It which prophesised that “ they’ll call time on it”. Well not quite lads, you have got until 10pm apparently.
Add this one to the collection.
