Rushden Diamonds are Michael Rushden, a leather jacket wearing, cigarette smoking badass out of your favorite 80’s popcorn flick and Lord Diamonds, his bandmate or perhaps more mysterious arch nemesis.
You might have heard of them: back in 2010 where their blend of tongue-in-cheek hip-hop caused a stir with the release of their double album debut “2010”. And, after a short absence, their follow up album, All The Right Moves – a record which lists Michael Jackson and Chic among its influences – perhaps is just the right formula to get people talking again.
The duo blend innovative synths with some amazingly recorded live instrumentation. And, somehow, by tossing together some lyrical gems, they manage to create a fresh and exciting sound which is all their own. But what makes All The Right Moves so mesmerizing is its fresh concept, outlook and spur of imagination.
Rushden Diamonds don’t just sound like their mega pop rock influences; they think like them too! All The Right Moves is one of the few records which paves the way for the followers to come.
