SLIPS AND THE F.W.’s Release Debut Album ‘SUGOI’


At Good Call Live, we love ALL genres of music. There’s a ‘lil ‘ol band from the Gold Coast + Brisbane that we’ve had our eyes (and ears) on for a while now because they bring something that, these days is a little ‘left of centre’ and we dig it so very much!

New Orleans style Jazz, Blues & Swing Band, Slips and the F.W.’s yesterday released their debut album, ‘SUGOI’ and it’s currently being played on loop here at Good Call Live HQ. Perfect Sunday tunes to get your booty shakin’ and to lift your spirits high for the week ahead.

‘SUGOI’ is a Japanese word used for describing something extraordinary like ‘wow’ or ‘amazing’ and the title fits this collection of songs to perfection in our opinion! The whole album was recorded in just one day in an old barn in Plainland, QLD which has been converted into a beautiful recording studio, perfect for the whole vibe and feeling for their debut release. Recorded onto tape using only three microphones, keeping the ‘Old Time’ feel.

‘SUGOI’ was written by David Kume and includes a gorgeous mix of musical influences from early Jazz & Blues, Ragtime, Hokum, Folk and Jug Band style music. With Kume being an Australian with Japanese heritage, this album takes you on a journey visiting fond memories of Japan to fantastical stories from the mountains to the sea.
