The Haggis Horns dropped a new killer funk “Haggis Express”
The Haggis Horns dropped a new killer funk "Haggis Express" from their forthcoming 5th studio album "Stand Up For Love". UK funk/soul kings The Haggis Horns are back after three years. This is pure dirty funk at it's best, deep in-the-pocket drums and bass groove, scratchy funk guitar, a fiery hammond organ solo, Latin fire congas and a horn section so sharp you could shave with their riffs. They took inspiration from the greatest funk bands like Kool & The Gang, Fred Wesley & The JB’s, The Blackbyrds, The Fatback Band, The Meters and Sly & The Family Stone, and they reached the same level of funk masterpiece.
