The first bars of track 1 "Don't Let Them" kick in and I close my eyes and smile - reassured I'm in for another BN9 treat of ultra cool funky rock blended with Stefanie Seskin's soothing vocals & her "calmer Ian Anderson-esque" flute work, (check out track 4 - "Dig My Hands"!!). BN9 CD's always take me back to 2001 when I first heard their debut album on's webcast show - It was the likes of Blue Number Nine et al that switched me on to the independent music scene with their professional, slick sound and addictive funk rock tunes… don't take my word for it - go and take a listen yourselves and see why I've spent the last four and a half years supporting independent music!!
