|LATIN QUARTER PANTOMIME OF WEALTH Limited Vinyl LP
Latin Quarter were formed in 1984 but came to most people’s attention in 1986 with the success of their first album, ‘Modern Times’. Featuring hit songs such as ‘Radio Africa’ and ‘The New Millionaires’ it sold over 300,000 copies and was described by the New York Daily news as ‘One of the
most exquisite electro-pop albums ever to come out of England.’ ( April 25th 1986). - That year also saw Latin Quarter play the main stage at the Glastonbury festival and play a sold-out concert in Hamburg’s Stadtpark.
Latin Quarter are now on the fourth album since 2012. Entitled ‘The Pantomime of Wealth’, the band see it as their strongest production to date. The songs are variously very political for our times (as you would expect) but there are also some much more personal tracks. Unfortunately drummer Richie Stevens is unable to tour but he is replaced by George Cook, a young drummer who has toured and/or recorded with Eminem, Birdy, Marika Hackman, Jamie N Commons, Tor Miller and most recently Rag N’ Bone Man. Back on bass is Yo Yo Buys and the added surprise is Mary Carewe, vocalist in her own right who has sung backing vocals on numerous recordings from Steps to Joe Cocker and
has performed at iconic venues around the world including the Royal Albert Hall, London and Carnegie Hall, NY.
