Apologies for any delays and pushing back of the release date but.. drum roll please! It is finally here! The Enforcer EP is the culmination of over five years of Fingersmithing – Inspired by the likes of Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield, Dexter and the Fingersmiths have always been into ‘Soundtrack Funk’ – this is their interpolation of funky street life in Leeds. From the soulful ‘Mr Green’ to the dark and brooding ‘Paranoia’, The Enforcer EP hopes to show a different side to the band – sharper, richer and more dynamic than ever before. Also available on limited edition vinyl!
So my funky friends! The Enforcer EP is almost here!! Only a month or so to go til the official release! I know you’re all as excited as we are! To whet your appetite, we have asked some of our funkiest and friendliest friends to take a whack at remixing the whole EP.. we’re releasing them slowly as we building up to the official release and the first mouth-watering remixes can be heard right here!

That’s right funky friends – our sexy new artwork for our sexy new EP has finally arrived! Courtesy of our friend Lotta Scott, we think it’s rather fantastic. In case you missed our xmas single release, below is the first taste of this Enforcer EP deliciousness – Mr. Green. Free download is also available from our bandcamp page.
Yes, the heart-rending rumours that you’ve heard are true – our cherished Dexter has departed these sodden green shores for distant, bratwurst-filled lands.
But wait… there’s no need to despair! The faithful Fingersmiths have been hard at work already, and a brand-spanking-new project is well under way – a funkadelic future beckons.
As a thank you for sharing our musical experience with us thus far, we have a cheeky festive treat for you – it’s only the first track from our beautiful new EP, ‘The Enforcer’, that’s coming out (Vinyl & Digital Download) Spring 2015!!!
Yes you heard that right – we’ve finally finished all the tweaks and touches on those new recordings and although Mr Dextrous is away for a while on the continent, we are gonna let these bad boys loose!
The first single from our ‘Enforcer EP’ will be creeping up on your ears within the month but we hope to release the full EP by February. (edit – EP release now due August 2015) We’re currently trying to sort out artwork, videos and distribution and as we are totally independent, we’d appreciate any artists, video editors or distributors who are willing to help, to get in touch asap via email (email@example.com) or our Facebook account.
We are also putting together an awesome mix-tape of all the tunes that have inspired and entertained us during the writing and recording of these new songs. We feel as though we’re really pushing and exploring the 70s ‘rogue cop’ genre with this EP, and we’re not afraid to show it! So until ‘Mr. G’ hits the world wide web, here are a few pics of us in the studio – keep it funky folks!
P.S. All our tunes are now in one place on youtube – so click HERE!
Hello there my furry friends!
The time has come to get these super new tunes recorded once and for all! Anyone who had the chance to catch us over the last month or so will have heard what we’ve been cooking up for you and now is the time to get it all set in stone. This ties in with our lead singer heading East for a while (literally this time – to Europe) and the Fingersmiths evolving into a brand spanking new being – keep your eye on the web for updates. Meanwhile, Dexter’s final EP, tentatively titled ‘Silver Tongue’, is in the process of being made over the next few days – once we’ve worked our magic and given it to some super-production geezers to master and fine-tune, we’ll let you hear it.
So until then… Enjoy your autumnal colours and we’ll catch you on the flip side!
Just a little one this week. Our mates down in Bristol, Mad Apple Circus, have a lovely fresh ska sound and I just wanted to share it with you as the weekend begins.. Summers coming people. Mother Nature is preparing it all for you and personally… I can’t wait!
Hello there – Dexter and the gang have been off writing new songs and learning new things so we may have fallen behind a little on the delights over the last week – BUT FEAR NOT! We will keep you updated on our movements.. in fact, pretty soon, you’ll be finding Dexter’s newest EP available all over the internet.. but first! A DELIGHT!
The Soul Circle Gang have played a few gigs with Dexter and the Fingersmiths in the past and they have been going from strength to strength as their music has grown and progressed with more and more excellent musicians joining the gang. This is their newest video, Fresh Fruit. Juicy.
