1979. Why? No idea. Next month we have a much more solid theme, so stay tuned, but as for this Friday....
The Brides of Funkenstein! Bringing some disco infused riffs and a full female vocal section led by Lynn Maybry and Dawn Silva the Brides on this night opened up for P-Funk. They were short lived but influential and popped around the P-Funk universe. Lynn also sang backup for The Talking Heads in 1984 and shows up in Stop Making Sense.
A great energetic funk show from 79, pro-shot, pro-sound. Set list and funky players below. Enjoy:
