The Debut single from Jimmy The Fingers is a positive message to all the girls out there, in a way only Jimmy The Fingers could do. The Single comes with remixes from The Melovskys of Mexico City and Darkhorse from San Francisco.
Look out for the increasingly popular video to the single shot by Steve Glashier at Nothing To See Here productions, with a little help from a lot of friends, and fast becoming a hit on youtube
Born under a bad sign between a rock and a hard place, Jimmy soon hit the skids and took to loitering outside the local chip shop in his cape, playing his demo on an old ghetto blaster whilst scrabbling around for titbits and narrowly avoiding kebab meat thrown at him. Darkhorse of Three Sixty Records heard the tape, found him covered in chips in a nearby ditch, dusted him down, and discovered the kid actually had some talent, taking him on and producing him for release on Three Sixty.
Imagine Prince and Beck fighting over cider, Frank Zappa and Jack Johnson taking bets in the corner, dirty electro’s playing in the background and you’ve got the Jimmy The Fingers sound.
In his youth Jimmy busted out toons with his equally greasy mates under the monikers Superdense Child and Zooface, and as a DJ has rubbed shoulders with the likes of Afrika Bambaata, Radio One’s Breezeblock show, Rahzel, Krafty Kuts, The Herbaliser, Fatboy Slim, Bonobo, and many more. He played keys in bands with Quantic, TM Juke, and Alice Russell from blossoming Brighton label Tru Thoughts. Then he found out he could sing, giving two fingers to the lot of em. Nowadays he works live with Kaoss Pads, synths and a cape. Jimmy The Fingers writes about life as he sees it: a joyous and just plain silly occasion, marred only by the wonders of temptation and melancholy. His musical stylings ever changing, he’s always one step ahead of the kids.
