Boy Azooga, who released their much loved and critically acclaimed debut album, 1,2 Kung Fu!, in 2018 on Heavenly Recordings, make a return with a stand-alone release featuring a brand new song, O Silly Me back by a cracking cover of U.F.O. by cult U.S. singer songwriter Jim Sullivan.

Available on Friday 13th December 2019 on Heavenly Recordings, Davey Newington of the band said about the tracks:

‘O Silly Me is a song about worry: written when worried that might hopefully ease some worry for other worriers. Hope you enjoy it (no worries if not).  And I was introduced to Jim Sullivan’s U.F.O last year by Tom Friend in Friendly Records. It has become one of my favourite ever albums since. Hope we did it some justice! Would like to dedicate this version to Pete, safe voyage on your U.F.O. ‘

Boy Azooga are currently writing and recording the follow up to 1,2 Kung Fu!, details of which will be announced in due course.

Finally, having played a sold-out U.K. headline tour, including a triumphant show at London’s  Scala, and more recently  having been personally invited, supported Neil Young on a number of European shows over the summer, Boy Azooga take their freewheeling live show on the road again in November to support Liam Gallagher on a  number of his forthcoming U.K. Arena shows.
