Neneh Cherry, who rose to stardom in freewheelin’ punk-jazz troupe Rip Rig & Panic (for those of you old enough to remember they performed on The Young Ones), has returned with her first album since 1996’s Man, an album of covers titled, The Cherry Thing. But this is no ordinary album of covers… teaming up with Scandinavian free-jazz legends, The Thing, they meld their worlds of avant-pop and improvisational muscle to push the boundaries of each song, until they collapse and reform into something truly exciting. I know the year is only at the half-way point, but this is going to be a major contender for album of the year! Here they are transforming MF Doom & Madvillain’s, Accordian. This is bound to get your Saturday morning jumping!
