You can’t help be pleased with yourself when you got the funk!
I spend most of my music-making time trying to produce awkward and strange electronic noises and beats and describe it to anyone I happen to chat to it about as "machine funk"
I had to give a lift to a stanger from work the other day and i’d previously been listening to a work in progress in the car.
His face contorted and he said "what the fuck is this?"
I appreciated his honesty,
I explained it was "machine funk"
He said "where’s the funk?"
I said "Are you aware of AphexTwin’s Window Licker?"
He said "No"
I asked him who his favourite band was, he said Coldplay. I wanted to punch him and i’m a staunch pacifist!
This isn’t going well, is it?
Basically, what i’m trying to say is “THE FUNK” comes in many forms and guises.
I think Window Licker is a seriously funky track.
I very much appreciate your strangeness
123alastairj and I would gladly take you to see George Clinton if he plays the UK again… if you’ll do me the honour… and that’s a promise!
But just to be getting on with!
