Album Notes
Traitor Monkey are from Twickenham - birthplace of British R&B. The Rolling Stones, the Faces, the Yardbirds and Rod Stewart all began there on an island in the Thames.

Traitor Monkey were formed in 2002 as a spin-off from critically acclaimed 90s project SCC.

Objective - to produce laid-back songs filled with hooks and slow-burn melodies. The High-flying man ep features five tracks (already well received in UK) from an album in progress.

Faye sings...

...I wish that livin were a boxing thing/
where you could trade your punches in the ring/
and you could jab and stab and dance and sting/
be high-flying man
movin up and down around a high-flying town... stops as turbines fail...

...the Captain was at the back coolly unplugging. Then he was running thru the long grass, the fastest man in the park. He clutched his box of tricks under his jacket like a holy relic...

...meanwhile, I was able to escape. I took the van and drove thru the trees trying to find her. But she had been one of the first to slip away into the scenery...

Well produced, cool. Highly recommended.
Picked up this CD in a shop in Kingston. Loved the 'traitor monkey' wording.
The tracks themselves are great.
Give it a go. You won't regret it.

Luke, LA

Carefully crafted jazzy numbers with smooth vocals and dark lyrics
Well-layered and carefully crafted chilled out tunes with bouncy basslines and smooth female vocals. Loads of influences including 60's film and series soundtracks, Portishead, Bowie and maybe even a more chilled out version of Skeewiff.
Definitely worth a listen.
