Marlon Cherry - "970-JACK" b/w "Hope"

Mecca Bodega vocalist Marlon Cherry steps out solo with this ode to Dr. Jack Kevorkian. Co-produced by Juba (also of M.B.), its a bottom-heavy funk-rocker with wild guitar a la Vernon Reid. The snappy, syncopated drums and sparse, choppy guitar of "Hope" can't help but bring The Police to mind, 'specially when the big rock n' roll chorus kicks in.
