The Soul Movers Get Up To Some Monkey Business

The Soul Movers will have a new album ‘Dumb Luck’ in September and have given us a preview with ‘Monkey’.

‘Monkey’ originated after ex-Wiggle and Soul Movers guitarist Murray Cook came to the realisation that he was “a performing monkey”. “Murray is ardently pursued by media outlets and OG Wiggles fans alike,” says Lizzie Mack. “Murray constantly gets asked to do Radio ID, selfies, podcasts etc and one day, driving in the band van, he said – I’m just a performing monkey. “The band have had LOTS of fun with that one ever since. Even going up on stage – after you, Monkey man.”

Murray is playing bass on ‘Monkey’. “Not many people know (maybe the OG Wiggles) that Murray likes to play guitar but it’s also a very well-kept secret that he is also the King of garage-pop style FUZZ Bass! The opening seconds of the Monkey! Are all about showing off Murray’s fuzz factor ten skills.”

There is also a stack of dates to wrap around the album released on 1 September.
