aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaWhat do you get when the worlds greatest funk band collides head on with the Woodstock Nation?
Drugs: The Mis-Americans,(Rx) a band with a critically acclaimed debut album and an underground reputation for a live show that rivals the best on the jam band circuit.
Rx sprung from P Funk's frontman Mike Clip Payne's collaboration with Woodstock's Robert Chicken Burke (Duke and the King) and Adam Widoff (Toshi Reagon's Big Lovely), that grew to include an all-star cast of musicians. Joe Eppard of 3, Jeremy Bernstein of Stoney Clove Lane, Stephanie McKay ( Mos Def,) and Parliament Funkadelic's Lige Curry and Garry "Starchild" Shider (R n R Hall of Fame 97)
Their debut album, The Prescription for Mis-America was praised for
"reviving the psychedelic sound of the 60's but mixing it with a touch of Sly Stone and Curtis Mayfield to create their own sound, not a parody of those who came before." ushering in the Psychedelic Soul Revolution. P funk fan mags have described it as "take[ing] up where the 1972 Funkadelic classic America Eats Its Young leaves off."
Drugs: Good for You
Pillars of the historic monument P-Funk, (a contraction of Parliament and Funkadelic), Americans Gary "Starchild" Shider (vocals/guitar),Lige Curry (bass) and Clip Payne (vocals/keyboard), are back in action and coming to us direct from Woodstock. Collaborating with these veterans are Robert "Chicken" Burke (drums, vocals), Joey Eppard (guitar/vocals), who have played on the albums of Alex Gopher and Cosmo Vitelli, and Adam Widoff (guitar) part of Lenny Kravitz's first group. These living legends are still provocative enough to give the finger to American puritanical attitudes; the name of their group couldn't be more explicit. They made their first French appearance at Transmusicales 2001. A mesmerizing performance was made even more tantalizing in retrospect by repeated delays in the release of their first album, which finally ended up on Kraked, a new French label, created by Loic Dury, the producer of Nova and figure of the 90s hip hop scene. Here's the general information! For the uninitiated, Drugs will quickly make you a surfer of the vintage wave. We will allow them their opportunism, so well do they get into that authentic groove which belongs only to the Blacks, that psychedelic old skool soul of which they are the legitimate trustees. A special word to all addicts of scorching instrumentals, chrome guitars, and oscillating basses, and a notification for all those who crave raspy soul voices: you by will not be disappointed by these dealers of big sound. A word of warning all the same: to take The Prescription for Mis-America ready your senses; take out your favorite Hendrix tune and the last Outkast album, fill your ears with a few grams of Sly Stone or the Grateful Dead, and enjoy Drugs without moderation. Drugs will give you a taste of true rhythm n blues and they will accompany you on your trip to the sources of this sound. The landing will be soft....Open Mag
