Finally it’s there, the long awaited new Scallymatic Orchestra album to honor Jimi Hendrix, released on – what would have been – his seventieth birthday. Name and artwork of the new project have been revealed. The album is going to be called ‘Band of Scallies’! There’s only one problem: the band didn’t get permission from the Hendrix estate to release it! Goes without saying the band is awfully sorry for that… It has taken so long.

But… a 5-track EP (10″ vinyl/download) will be available instead, and only in The Netherlands. At their upcoming shows later this month at BIRD and The Sugar Factory you’ll be able to buy – for only 5 euro’s – a very classy download coupon.
