August 2016 Long hot summer…..

All at KING SIZE SLIM are very happy to have received a shining 4/5 star review from one of the UKs leading music magazines. R2 magazine covered the album ‘Chukka Chukka’. in a summer edition. Heres what they had to say….. 4/5 star review……. “Terrific Stuff”
“Few artists create a distinctive sound but KING SIZE SLIM aka Toby Barelli has done just that. His rootsy guitar grooves and often home-made percussion sounds may in themselves be idiosyncratic but throughout Chukka Chukka the memorable instrument is Slims voice. Not,it should be stressed, because he is a particularly impressive singer , but due to a punchy phrasing a rhythmical delivery that convert his vocals into an additional percussion instrument…….. The title track spins a more modern ,more melodic take on Hill country drone blues a style that reoccurs on ‘America Ground with its quirky vocals and hypnotic guitar vibe. ‘Story of a young man” adds an updated rhythm and contemporary lyrics to its traditional blues core while both ‘Love Divine’ and ‘May we find’ are gospel based gems. “Long Lonely Time”an uptempo blues harmonica number neatly melds retro and modern sounds with his percussive vocals again to the fore on ‘I can roll my own”…… terrific stuff. “
