ZANG TUMMM TUMB ARTICLES “the first draft of history”

ABC: Tears Are Not Enough (Neutron) Against stiff competition, in a fortnight of fine and funky singles, this one wins by a hair. The vinyl debut of the latest in a long line of incredibly hip Sheffield bands, this is a funk attack on all fronts: from the thumb-slapping bass and the pounding percussion to the fluid horn runs and the stroppily soulful vocals. Passionate, intelligent and proud, with a defiant dance rating, ABC inspire optimism for the future of Brit-Funk. Great.
