The show: Getting funky and retro

Gah! And that was a real self-loathing Stewie Griffin style “gah”. I can’t believe that I just used the term “funky”. Makes me sound like a  middle-aged middle-manager at a shitty office party that no one wanted to attend. The Herb Whisperer would have kicked my arse if he had been here. So let’s just pretend that I used the term “the funk” instead, okay?

So why the funk and retro? Well, there wasn’t a huge amount of it to be honest but during times of recession and long winters it’s good to dig through the record collection for a bit of inspiration hence the stone cold classics from Funky Four Plus One‘s (the epic “That’s The Joint” (the which inspired the name of this show) and The JBs (for a high speed funk workout).

But the point I’m getting to is that if you’re feeling a bit down and don’t mind falling into the fatal trap of shopping to make yourself feel better then you can’t go wrong by buying cheap second hand records. Especially from places like Galaxy Records where I scored mint copies of Blondie‘s “Autoamerican” (1980), Malcolm McLaren‘s “Duck Rock” (1983), and Stu and The Lads “Nice One Stu” (1976). Cheers Dave !!!
