Boy Azooga is the shape-shifting musical mystery tour piloted by Cardiff’s Davey Newington, co-produced by the band and Eddie El Shakarchie aka Dr Ed Boogie and recorded in part in Eddie’s front room in Cardiff.

A prodigious musical talent, Davey was inspired by his art teacher at school who sent him off to town to buy Can’s ‘Ege Bamyasi’ and he takes musical cues from the likes of Sly & The Family Stone, Caribou, Black Sabbath, Outkast, Van McCoy, Ty Segall and The Beastie Boys.

With Davey recruiting friends Daf Davies, Dylan Morgan and Sam Barnes to form the Boy Azooga live quartet - an ensemble that swings smoothly from filmic instrumentals to a churning, rave-tinged rock that hints at both Can and their progeny the Happy Mondays - the band played a number of headline and support shows across the UK at the end of last year, including a manic sold-out hometown show in Cardiff at Clwb Ifor Bach almost a year to the day they made their debut in the city at the same venue.
