  • Paper Dress Presents: Mr Little Noisy / Soul Grenades / The Boom Dogs

    Fri 19 Aug

    7:45 pm


    Paper Dress Presents an evening of wonderful live music from our unique shop window stage in Hackney Central. On Friday 19 August we welcome…


    Funk-Jazz with a touch of Drum ‘n’ Bass, Rock and New Orleans rhythm. Compositions and arrangements by Andy Little.

    Mr Little has always had a noisy brain. As a child he would press his head up to people’s ears and ask if they could hear it. They never could and the older he grew the more frustrated he became until at last it was unbearable. Desperate to be heard, he sold his soul to the devil in return for a band of his finest musicians.

    Since then Mr Little and his noisy band have been making music to captivate and spiritualise the senses, each night giving meaning to their music which it has never had before and may never have again.


    Purveyors of heavyweight funk and soul grooves with a contemporary edge, Soul Grenades are quickly establishing themselves as one of the most dynamic live acts on the scene. Fronted by veteran soul vocalist Sabina Challenger (featured on The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show with The Getup), the band boasts a rock-solid, super-tight rhythm section, blistering horns, and a burgeoning song book of future classics.

    The band’s critically-acclaimed EP Sunshine will soon be followed by their debut album, scheduled for release summer 2016.


    Think early Red Hot Chili Peppers meets The Sugarhill Gang. The stankiest, funkiest, slap-bassiest, nastiest filthiest funk-rock band you’ll see in London.
