Cha-Cha - The Fellowship (Pop Noodle)
Steph Cosway | Saturday, 20 March 2010
If you are a fan of the eccentric author Roald Dahl you might have come across his novel 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. Now, if you have read it you might recall that the story follows George as he tries to concoct a medicine to cure his Grandma of her horrible ways. To do this he uses all sorts of ingredients. What he doesn't realise is that a simple cure for his grumpy Grandma is currently hidden away in London.
You see, Cha-Cha are the musical equivalent of valium. One beat of this band's latest single 'The Fellowship' - a free download no less - is enough to zap any old hag out of her bad mood and into a dance frenzy.
Which, come to think of it seems to be a regular occurrence when listening to Cha-Cha. 'The Fellowship' is funky, fun and quite exceptionally fabulous. That's not mentioning how addictive it is. The guitar riffs in this song will have you bobbing up and down as if some trickster has super-glued a space hopper to your backside. And boy, do you have to love the singer's voice which sounds like the musical equivalent of a strawberry smoothie.
It's going to be very difficult to wait until May to hear the album.
