      Listen to the whole interview: http://www.wnyc.org/shows/soundcheck/episodes/2010/04/21/segments/153744 When a record-store owner meets a tailor, bands like Kings Go Forth are born. The 10-piece funk-and-soul band has three lead singers. The mysterious artist Mingering Mike designed the cover of their curiously titled debut, The Outsiders Are Back. Their onstage apparel can be...distinctive. Today, this Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based group joins us to turn up the energy with a live performance in the Soundcheck studio.

                Imelda May has been nicknamed Dublins answer to Amy Winehouse. And there are indeed similarities between her and the multiple-Grammy winner provocateur from the UK: the soulful repertoire, the irreverent attitude and the powerful voice. But Imeldas sound is more rockabilly, a genre she has loved since she was four. She performs live in our studio.
