Some old pimp shh…

Here’s another of my favourite bands – Funkadelic, playing I Got a Thing (1970). The perfect acoustic accompaniment to pink Cadillacs and full-length fur coats, this could well be the funkiest film footage ever recorded. (And that is a blue Ku Klux Klan outfit he’s wearing.)

  1. The best part is that they were going to follow that with Bobby Sherman.
    Little did they suspect in those days that funk was actually a nonrenewable resource, and that George Clinton was overexploiting it at an unsustainable rate, leaving later generations to experience only a relatively funkless pop music.

  2. The best part is that they were going to follow that with Bobby Sherman.
    Of course, in the early 70s, they didn’t realize that funk was a nonrenewable resource, and that George Clinton was using it up at an unsustainable rate, leaving later generations of pop music without a viable source.

  3. I can’t help but look at this posting, in which you invoke the word “pimp” and write about, “pink Cadillacs and full-length fur coats,” in the context of your post of about a week ago entitled “Reel Bad Arabs”.

  4. Where did some of the brain damage come from?
    James Brown, the Stones, and Jimmy Hendricks germinated a mandatory preposterous presentation.
    Many of the stylized youngsters are practicing law now.
    Or juggling finance and/or words.
    Peeyar and upward mobility.
    Johnny Cochran had “style.”
    Shock and awe is style.
