A debut three track cassette from a seriously funky outfit. With most musicians who make this kind of soulful pop rushing headlong into an increasingly computer generated soundscape, it really is a refreshing change to hear some funk being played by human beings holding real instruments. True Addiction conjure up an almost forgotten world of neat, understated, funky guitar licks and clever rhythm sections. But whilst the playing is tight enough never to lose its mid tempo groove, it's the vocals that mark this band out as genuine contenders. The backing of Collette Dallas and Jo Horton is perfectly executed and Martin Stanesby's lead vocals are a throaty, passionate delight. Three strong songs too. They sound like a band to me. A real band.
