Corduroy arrived on the Acid Jazz scene in early 1992. Self-styled as the Fabric Four, they cut a striking presence with their soundtrack for the beatific generation.
2018, however, welcomes a new album. The aptly titled The Return Of The Fabric Four, recorded in the 2Bit studio in south London between May and November 2017, takes the group – drummer Ben Addison and keyboardist Scott Addison, bassist Richard Searle, guitarist Simon Nelson-Smith – back to their Acid Jazz source with 12 tracks that score that archetypal ’60s spy film, with split screens and montages, car chases, secret agents in black specs and fawn macs and girls in kinky boots and knitted dresses.
