Corduroy / Private Jones. Records Store Day single.

The first release on the re-launched Well Suspect Records label is a double A side Record Store Day, limited edition (500 copies), white vinyl seven inch single, featuring Private Jones' audacious cover version of The Jam's I Got By In Time; and a previously unreleased version of Chowdown recorded live by the funky beatnik outfit, Corduroy in 1992.

Taken from the forthcoming Well Suspect compilation, Generation Mod (SUSS04), Private Jones have re-imagined Paul Weller's punky rocker, featured on The Jam's debut album 'In The City', as a Tamla Motown stomper; expect to hear this on on talcum powder sprinkled dance-floors; a DJ box essential.
The flip side is a recently discovered live recording of Corduroy, from one of the Acid Jazz groups' earliest gigs, playing one of their live favourites, Chowdown. This funky instrumental captures the band at the beginning of their career, playing in a small and sweaty basement club in London's Soho. One for the beardy below.

This is bound to be a highly sought after item, so get down your local record shop very early on Record Store Day (April 16th); or if you don't fancy losing out to the in-crowd, here's a link.
