If George Clinton tried to cover 'BUP" whom would he most likely ask to play the keyboard parts? Hmm. (And don't worry about your decision not to respond to my post. It's a rhetorical question.)

regarding race, funk, and the talking heads...

every member of the expanded heads line up was black, no? the percussionist, the extra guitar player, both back up singers, the other bassist, and of course, one of them was keyboard wizard, bernie worrell.

aside from that nonsense, whereas p-funk may never have written anything as eerie as "born under punches" those fuckers never did anything as good as anything on the first three funkadelic albums. their forays into funk don't touch "mothership connection."

why don't we start a thunderdome?

Oh, I see the misconception now; you both thought that by "white-face-on-black-music" I was speaking about the number of black people in the Talking Heads at one time or another.

No. Musical style.

Born Under Punches is a great song.

Leaves. Me. Dry.
No wishy-washy relativist, I; There are certain things we know, and your dryness reflects not on the object of appreciation but rather upon the appreciating subject.

You should feel an empathic reaction to the pain of others.

You should love and care for your offspring.

You should not fuck children or animals.

You should be moved when Eddie Hazel plays like his momma just died.

Wow, it's been nearly two years since a bump on this? Never woulda guessed.

Anyhow, I have too many great things to say about this group of individuals who have made some of the best music I have ever heard in my life.

I'll leave it at Not Crap, no waffles, no slight sides of anything even remotely Crap.

The world would not be as a great as it is without Parliament Funkadelic.

That and "No Compute" is a very, very underrated favorite of mine.

Sometimes, I have to drive around my city at 3:30 in the morning with Maggot Brain on.

Actually, Maggot Brain sounds exceptionally ideal between the hours of 2 am and 7 am. That's when that album was meant to be listened to.
That's not entirely true.

Works every time, doesn't it?

I've said so before on another thread, but late night walks with nothing but the sound of Maggot Brain have helped get me through more than one rough patch.

Bootsy Collins' solo albums are the best deterrent against forming a coke habit.

Yeah, but sadly there is a good counterargument in the form of Eddie Hazel's solo albums. Not coherent, but very enjoyable.

Oh man, listen to "Chug-A-Lug (The Bun Patrol)". It sounds like Bootsy losing his shit with kazoos.

Actually, I'm going to go out on a limb here.

The one and only thing I have to thank the Red Hot Chili Pepper for is introducing me to this and many other great bands, including The Stooges, Minute Men, Gang of Four...

hmmm.

Right, it is going to be hard-slapped rubbery basses and burping synths and sleazy voices when I come home. Parliament this time, Funkadelic is reserved for rocking nights. I've been living with P-Funk intensively for last five years only but that's it, the shit. Good stuff.

Bootsy's early solo albums are incredible.
