    Today I discovered ... Brownout

    wandering through the CD's at Sound Machine, I came across a CD called "Aguilas and Cobras" by Brownout, it was on the "six degrees " label, which is a label that always satisfies my non blues cravings, as it's the home of Bombay Dub Orchestra and some fine world music Cd's .
    So I bought the CD, took it home, put it in the CD, and got my sensibilites stretched - they are a psychaedelic Latin funk band from Texas ( thanks Wikipedia), but more intriguingly, are in fact an alter ego of Grupo Fantasma!
    So mix Santana, James Brown, Tower of Power and throw in a slab of acid drenched funky rhythms , mix it up with a splash of Osibisa and you get this fine CD
    So a double win for me..
    Anyway, If you want to know what the Funkadelic side of Grupo F sounds like, this is "SLinky" from the CD.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
