Who? Alternatively know as Stephen Black.
Why now? Here is the premiere of Baboo’s latest track which till feature on his Dennis’ EP, due out 26 Feb. “Blowing Up My Mind is a northern soul classic,” suggests Mr Black. “It was originally recorded by The Exciters. We recorded it as a B-side to Got To Hang On To You, as we namecheck The Exciters and the song in my song. For whatever reason we ended up not using it. It’s a pretty faithful rendition of the original.” Meanwhile Sweet Baboo kicks off a UK tour at The Musician in Leicester on 2 February.
