Soothsayers blow away Hideaway and find Lost City

Soothsayers played the Hideaway in Streatham, London SW16, the scene of some of this superb band's most memorable shows, on Fri 24 Oct and Sat 25 Oct. What's more, they've also served up a special treat for their acolytes. 12 "years ago, Soothsayers burst onto the scene with ‘Lost City’, a fantastic blend of jazz, afro-beat and reggae. The album became a firm favourite of fans and critics alike, paving the way for a host of further successful LPs. Now Red Earth Records have released ‘Lost City’ for the first time on beautiful 12” vinyl.
