Where deco meets disco meets decon; with Jamaladeen Tacuma, G. Calvin Weston, Bern Nix, Marc Ribot and Anthony Coleman. 5 professional, harmolodic noise improvisers with an uncommon love of Phillysoul and hardgroove. Forever young, forever Philadelphian, forever fixated on the moment before dance went digital. Stuck in the groove like a scratch in your favourite record. Ladies and Gentlemen... the hardest working men in punk/funk/soul/noise: The Young Philadelphians!!! The Young Philadelphians pays tribute twin legacies. The mind-blowing punk-funk of Ornette Coleman's fors prime time band and the sweet, optimistic pulse of the 1970s Philly Soul. Ribot enlisted bassist Janaaladeen Tacuma and drummerG. Calvin Weston, both primetime alumni and Philadelphia natives, adding guitarist Bern Nix and keyboardist Anthony Coleman to do the job. And the name? "Ever see that movie with Paul Newman?" Ribot asks: "It's about these rich young lawyers from Philly. We hat a goosaugh about that. You should hear our version of "Fly Robin Fly".
