TWO AMAZING NEW SINGLES FROM GROVER SUPREME!
MR T BONE vs THE CAROLOREGIANS “The Italian Job” 7″
“The Italian Job” it’s more than a concept EP, it’s a symbolic bridge between two countries. The famous Belgian early reggae band invited the Italian singer/trombone player to join them, he soon left his mum and the pizzeria to ride his vespa through the Alps.

The tape rolled up and what we have is a romantic flavor on a super groovy rhythm. Read the rest of this entry »
