Band of Scallies

Name and artwork of the new project are revealed. The album is going to be called 'Band of Scallies'! Check the cover.
There's only one problem: we did not get permission from the Hendrix estate to release it! We're awfully sorry for that... It has taken so long.
A 5-track EP (10" vinyl/download) will be available instead, and only in The Netherlands. More news soon!
Album news

Recordings were delayed quite a bit, but are done now. Mixing is in progress. The album release is due in the fall of 2012 on Flyin’ High Records (if the Hendrix estate likes the results that is - fingers crossed!). Stay tuned for updates and sneak peaks...

New Singer!

After dealing with some line-up changes we can proudly present to you our new singer: Soul Mack! This man, a great new Dutch talent, will be on the mic during future Scallymatic shows. You might already know him from our single Freedom, and he will be singing on the whole upcoming album. Furthermore we've taken in the amazing Daan Herweg on the keys.

Out Now: single 'Freedom'

First release of the Hendrix project: the single Freedom is now available in iTunes, Amazon and most other online stores!
The single was already 'Single of the week' on Dutch Radio6.
Check Flyin' High Records for further info.

CD artwork

We're almost there: the release of our debut cd in Paradiso April 3rd! This first album is very special to us, not only because of the music. We're very proud to have a work of art on the cover by internationally acclaimed Dutch artist Marcel van Eeden.
His more abstract drawings are very 'jazz' and expose an atmosphere that matches our music perfectly (we think:-). His work is based on the life before his time. As we are heavily inspired by music 'before our time', the connection is more than evident.
With very kind permission of Marcel, courtesy Galerie Zink, we based our album design on his drawing 'Annie get you gun'. And by doing so, the album found it's name.
Check the cover on the image page.
CD presentation!

It's now confirmed: on Friday April 3rd we will celebrate the official release of our debut album 'Annie get your gun' in Paradiso, Amsterdam!
Show starts at 20:00 hours sharp on the upstairs stage, and will feature lots of special guests.
Presale starts saturday March 7th. Support by the Jazzdiggers dj's.
Hope to see you there! Paradiso Check the tour schedule for other dates.
Something's cooking

There's wispering in the alleys, meaningful glances, it's buzzing and it's getting louder... Something's cooking at Scallymatic HQ. A big bird, looks like a crane, crosses the sky; there's some arrowjazz airplay.
Is it going to happen? Find out sOOn!-)
