Rude Boy George has gone through a bit of a change again. Roger, Marc and Pam are now joined by some new members including Jenny Whiskey and Rob George from Hub City Stompers and Bigger Thomas. Megg is having a baby and taking some time away from the band, and other members have went off to do new things (jazz) or old things (Sgt Scagnetti). The band have released their new EP, Love My Way, which contains 4 new tracks of new wave ska covers. Plus, the album art was designed by me!
Love My Way is our 4-song EP of 80’s new wave tracks by The Pretenders, Yazoo, Gary Numan and the Psychedelic Furs that we recorded towards the end of last year. The EP is called Love My Way in honor of the Psychedelic Furs song of the same name but also to honor the new wave artists on this record — Chrissie Hynde, Gary Numan, Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke and Richard Butler — who forged a new sound and created instant classics in the process.
The album art pays respects to UB40’s 1983 Labour Of Love album cover and features a collage of images that illustrate each of the songs on the EP and individual band members.
You can purchase the new EP Love My Way at their Bandcamp page.
