King Size Slim (Hastings, UK) and Gianni Tbay (Torino, Italy) spent part of their social distancing time joining forces respectively from their home places and gave birth to "Lockdown Too", a catchy groovy number about these lockdown days.
King Size Slim: lyrics, lead vocals, guitar and rhythm section.
Gianni Tbay: slide guitar and backin vocals
Mixed and mastered by Guglielmo Nodari
Lockdown, uptight, everyday’s the same to me
Lockdown, real tight, home's the only place to be
Sunshine, and blue skies, but only for 1 hour a day
Can’t breathe, don’t feel right,
Need to find a place to play
Got to get away got to find a place to Lockdown to
Got to get away got to find a place to lockdown too.

You might keep us locked down but you can't stop the rock and the music from being created anyway.
Just like a water leak it will spread through the cracks, cross paths with other flow and eventually become a big river in search for its sea. So paradoxically this times of social distancing open up new trails toward unexplored territories.
Here's a song that my friend KING SIZE SLIM (from Hastings, UK) wrote and gently asked me to contribute to it, so I grabbed my Kay, tracked some slide guitar parts and added backin' vocals over.
We are extremely thrilled by this groovy laidback sound and couldn't keep from putting this single out today!
"Lockdown Too" is a song about us, and goes out to all those looking for a place to play.
