VINNY VINNY ‘BLAHBLAHBLAH’
MONDAY CLUB RECORDS
Vinny Vinny are the sharp-suited 4-piece band that you’ve been hearing good things about since last summer. Vinny Vinny are BLAHBLAHBLAH and they’re about to blow your mind.
Broke up the Family is the highly charged second single from the celebrated Southend Soulsavers Vinny Vinny, who are ready to take 2008 by storm. Their first single One Eyed Maniac tickled the tastemakers in all the right places and became the explosive platform for good things to come for these honest Nu Soul boys from Essex.
2007 was a mighty achievement for such a new band seeing them catapulted into the heady hedonistic heights at the infamous Ibiza Rocks gigs, supporting The Holloways – an envious gig for any group arriving on the scene – resulting in them being hotly tipped by mega-hip rock publication BLAH and indie bible BLAHBLAH. Having been championed by Dr Martens and Levis, they have proceeded to perform groundbreaking gigs at BLAHBLAHBLAH. Vinny Vinny are ready to continue on their Nu Soul crusade.
Their new single ‘Broke Up The Family’ is a catchy charismatic charged up pop track with classic guitar driven riffs. Slices of rhythm and blues cut throughout the track, and, with the raw tasty vocals of front man Rick Nunn, a cracking bass line, driving drums and raw guitars, it brings together a kaleidoscope of influences that punch throughout this storming second single, creating a genuine foot-stomping floor filler.
Vinny Vinny have a special energy and passion, which oozes from them and their genuine madness about music and what they do. They don’t stand still – and neither will you!
Watch out for their electric shows to support Broke Up The Family. You’d be silly to miss such an astonishing band.

"You’d be silly to miss such an astonishing band"
No I wouldn't. I've been saving this one for a few days so I can enjoy it in peace, but now I want everyone to have their chance to wallow a little. If we were to take it apart bit by bit we'd be here all day, but let's agree to agree that none of us have ever heard of Vinny Vinny - although we have heard of Vincent Vincent and his Villains - and the chances our minds will be "blown" by a dish-water dull, four-square indie group such as this shower are about as likely as discovering that their record isn't a bruisingly tedious retread of a million other bruisingly tedious records we've already suffered. Having said that, I'm promised here that these "taste-maker ticklers" ("championed by Dr Martens and Levis") will "take 2008 by storm", so I'm fully willing to apologise when they do. But, to make it fair, I want a written apology when they don't. OK? And supporting The Holloways is not an "envious gig" it's an "enviable gig" (except it isn't, they're one of the ten most awful bands in the country), but let's not worry about that too much right now.
