Tonight at 6.30pm Steve Evans will be chatting to Dennis Greaves of Nine Below Zero regarding their forthcoming release "Don't Play That Song (You Lied)"
“One of the best blues bands in Britain”, cult Rhythm and Blues band Nine Below Zero release this first single from their brand new album ‘13 Shades of Blue’.
This particular track came about when Squeeze member Glenn Tilbrook (whose 45 RPM studio was used to record the album, and who features on album track ‘That’s What Love Will Make You Do’ playing the Sitar Guitar) rang band frontman Dennis Greaves and said, “I've just heard a track on the radio that Nine Below Zero would murder. It’s called ‘Don’t Play That Song (You Lied)’ by Aretha Franklin, you've got to do it.”
The Nine Below Zero version features guest vocals from Charlie Austen who walked into a Blues night Dennis hosts and asked to sing.
Since their formation in 1977 NINE BELOW ZERO have developed a reputation as one of the best blues bands in Britain. Their high energy live act was already well established by the time they signed to A&M RECORDS in 1980 and was forever captured on their classic live album 1980’s ‘Live At The Marquee’.
Nine Below Zero is touring and will be at The Globe Cardiff on 3rd December
