Crazy P do it to me.

Hot off the heels off Bestival shenanigans, a special mention has to go out to the much loved Crazy P who put on an incredible set in front of 300 lucky punters in the Red Bull Tent.crazy

Crazy P bore the more fruity name “Crazy Penis” back sometime in 2001 when I discovered their single “You started Something” and have been going from strength to strength since then. Check out their music but if you get the chance, get your dancing shoes to one of their gigs. Lead singer Danielle Moore has more energy than a vat of red bull and Chris Todd, James Baron, Tim Davies and Mat Klose are more than capable of providing a equally infectious soundtrack that will leave you dancing, spinning and making silly shapes all night long.

It was great to see an old favourite Gilles Peterson return to the Isle of Wight. From a Bollywood tent containing 6, to virtual capacity in a matter of minutes the mightly lord of Brownswood is certainly a crowd puller. An educator and true representative of  modern Jazz, hip-hop and soul Gilles continues to supply a diverse and progressive alternative to the mass-audience-music that unfortunately dominates British radio. Catch up with his sound and interviews on Radio One – Wednesdays 02:00-04:00, or take away his podcasts; http://www.gillespetersonworldwide.com/podcasts.php.
