As Bongo Boy continues celebrating the Rock N’ Roll TV series’ 5th season, Alabama’s The Wild Fruit begin this episode with the video for their song “Slow It Down”. Strong, stand out drumming begins this track and stays prominent throughout the entire number. A rhythm heavy Southern fried blues and hard rock blend, it’s a fast paced joy ride of a song. The video’s scenes of the band playing in front of a swamp interspersed with a young couple hitting the road work well to enhance the song’s feelings of wild freedom.

Bongo Boy continues celebrating their 5th season of the Rock N’ Roll TV Show with another selection from the archives, this one from the UK’s Rozii Chaos and her song “The Beginning Of The End”, which was also featured on Bongo Boy Records Compilations, Vol 1 in Asia. With a strong backbeat and a metallic-tinged, 80’s chart rock throwback sound, this song is toe tapping fun. Rozii’s powerful vocals have a Pat Benatar influence that helps set this song apart.

Continuing Bongo Boy TV’s 5th season celebration is another favourite from the archives, as well as another song featured on Bongo Boy Records Compilations Vol 1 in Asia, NYC’s own B.

From the Bongo Boy TV archives in celebration of the Rock N’ Roll TV Show’s 5th season comes this fan favourite from the UK’s The Whitaker Brothers, the video for their song “Good Love”, a track which was also included on Bongo Boy Records Compilations Vol 1 in Asia. A strong backbeat opens and provides the solid foundation for the soulful rock groove of this song. Raspy, lived in vocals fit the laid back vibe of this song that encourages listeners to stand out from the crowd. The animated video is a knockout. Beginning with stark b&w drawings, colour is added to the dynamic and at times psychedelic drawings as instruments are added into the music. Unique and beautifully done, this video truly enhances the song’s atmosphere.
