The Brand New Heavies
The masters and pioneers of acid jazz, The Brand New Heavies, will be playing again Barcelona after a 19-year absence.
The band, which hails from London, is made up of Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew, Andrew Levy and N'Dea Davenport.
The Brand New Heavies began in the Eighties as an instrumental acid jazz group called Brother International; however, after signing their first record contract, borrowing from a liner note on a James Brown single declaring the artist 'Minister of New Super Heavy Funk', they changed their name.
As The Brand New Heavies, they gained a cult following in the London club scene and soon signed to Cooltempo as acid jazz replaced rare groove in clubs.
