STAR CHILD HERE-CITIZEN OF THE UNIVERSE-PUT A GLIDE N YOUR STRIDE & A DIP IN YO HIP AND COME ONTO THE MOTHERSHIP, AIN’T NUTHIN BUT A PARTY
HOME OF THE P_FUNK,,DA BOMB, DOIN IT IN 3-D
LIGHT YEARS, WE WERE AHEAD OF OUR TIME
Having been present amongst the jubilant fellow STARCHILD P-FUNK attendees in Washington DC & Atlanta Georgia when George Clinton exited the Mothership lets examine QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT. Chester Arthur Burnet aka HOWLIN WOLF influenced more budding young ENGLISH & AMERICAN rock musicians than CARTER HAS LIVER PILLS. . Indeed the contribution to HISTORICALLY REAL AMERICAN MUSICAL CLASSICS is so deep and so wide it resembles the GRAND CANYON. African-American musicians were the idols of my generation. 1st heard HOWLIN WOLF when I was 11 years old. Muddy Water sums it up when he teamed with Johnny Winter in this Classic rendition of , ” THE BLUES DONE HAD A BABY”.
ONCE UPON A FUNK-O-TIME, in 1997 when the WEB began to erupt in ernst, follow closely whilst I paraphrase the technological conundrum presented by TODAY’s licentious excuse for entertainment using another of my all time heroes of COMPLETE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION and RAW TALENT.
George Clinton and Funkadelic’s smash funkey-tizer COSMIC SLOP.
GOOD vs EVIL learnt thru thine EAR-HOLES. EAR-HOLE is an interesting euphemism coined exclusively and thusly used by P-FUNK in their classic acid-funk tune,” GOOD TO YOUR EARHOLE”
Common sense ablaze across riveting guitar riffs and soulful vocals in a long-lost musical genre, acid/FUNK fusion. George Clinton’s writings are fabulous entreaties of class struggles buttressed by our basic freedoms. George used all the technologies he could to forward his music. Just like Frank Zappa is a celebrated intellectual Classical Musician, George Clinton is a DUKE University studied philosopher and honorary Doctorate Adjunct Professor of Music at Berkeley University.
Demonstrating just how far we have come, read all about P-FUNK here at DUKE UNIVERSITY’s on this 1997 static web-page http://people.duke.edu/~tmc/pfunk.html .
Bless me when we were kids we had to sit in mud puddles and fart for a massaging bath JAC-kooo-ZIES .Music was our only TRUE escape. Musicians refused to back away from their talented content to procure FAT CAT MOGUL PRODUCERS PROFIT BOTTOM LINE ADVANCING DESIGNS. Let’s reflect instead of take for granted the onslaught of entertainment possibilities now available. Real talent endures all test of time
PUT YOUR FOOT ON THE ROCK, EVERYBODY FUNKING & DON’T KNOW HOW!!!!
My generation grew up on Soul , Motown, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Parliament & P-FUNK, Earth Wind and Fire, BARKAYS, Theolonious MONK, Art Blakey, Charles Mingus, Charlie “Bird” Parker, COLTRAINE, Miles Davis, PROG ROCK, rhythm and Blues. Jazz, Country Music , Bluegrass, and I could continue filling the entire page. Current ENTERTAINMENT-LESS entertainers of all musical genres ought to RUN & HIDE, immediately ceasing their wantant loosing of their ignorance of talent upon HUMANITY.
George penned in Cosmic Slop we can, but we must be wary of dancing with the devil. WE MUST KNOW THE DIFFERENCE .
Yes MAN and MA’AM, you had to have been there. Thanks to the internet I took you there.
In 1974 68y/o Arthur C.Clark forcasted and elucidated vividly exactly what web advances we enjoy today. In fact this pitch tells it ALL.
Did I fail to mention a majority of the JAZZ Masters are from NORTH CAROLINA. Theolonious Monk grew up in Rocky Mount , NC. MONK, my favorite Jazz Pianist is credited as the FATHER OF BE BOP.
Ending with COLTRANE & MILES DAVIS, two of the most influential brass i.e., Sax & Trumpet players to have ever lived,,,Trane’s from NC also. One of their most beloved sexteteEnsemble pieces, “SO WHAT”.
