Is there a Northern Soul scene in Tel Aviv? Yes there is, according to Yashiv Cohen, lead singer of Men Of North Country, a Tel Aviv Mod band that has recorded two albums for the London based label Acid Jazz.
Cohen and long time soul digging brothers, Johnnie and Bin Neeman (Neeman meaning Faithful in Hebrew), have been spinning records together for more than a decade as the Tel Aviv Soul Club, and now they have taken it a step further and teamed up with Tel Aviv’s top musicians to create original soul and R&B inspired music. As The Faithful Brothers – now an eight piece band behind Yashiv, complete with a mighty brass section – they have recorded a few songs, and have had their first live appearance, opening for and backing American Soul artist Eli Paperboy Reed.
On the second Elb Digger Single – Downtown, Uptown – The Faithful Brothers blast an R&B duet featuring Tel Aviv Soul singer Carmi Shimron. The B Side – Night Man – is a beautifully crafted Northern Soul influenced instrumental.
