"who are the brain police?"
Interesting to hear this again, Microdot.It's also evident that P-Funk influenced the Talking Heads, although that statement ignores the presence of P-Funk keyboardist Bernie Worrell on numerous Talking Heads LPs.
My bass playing idol is and was, Bootsy Collins. I just found a trove of videos of him playing live with James Brown when he was a teenager!He was the backbone of Brown hits like Sex Machine...the early 70's stuff. Heand his brother Catfish left the James Brown Organization and he took the horn section with him to Funkadelic.I was going to post a Funkadelic live reunion tour concert performance of Flashlight! What was great about it was the intro vamp, they led into it with a perfect version of the big band arrange ment of The Slime by Frank Zappa.Flashlight...now that was a monster groove with no conscience of its own! It was big enough to destroy cities and it was tiny enough to make you itch like a mosquito bite!It made no sense but it's internal logic was impeccable!
