SATURDAY BEST BET: Funk


GEORGE CLINTON AND PARLIAMENT


FUNKADELIC Prospecto Music Festival, Grand Rapids Oct. 1 (Festival runs Sept. 30–Oct. 2) Location and time TBD prospectogr.com


AS THE UNDISPUTED GODFATHER of funk, George Clinton stuck his claim during the 1960s as staff songwriter for the Motown record label. To this day, Clinton’s discography continues to be one of the most plundered sample banks, with some of pop and hip-hop’s current preeminent figures including Dr. Dre and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, helping themselves to heaps of funky gold. In 2003 Clinton was arrested on charges for possession of cocaine, but just like Rick James, Clinton turned this little, “cocaine is a hell-of-drug,” snafu into a kind of blast-from-the-past P-Funk revival. Most recently,


he’s appeared as the voice of Funktipus, the DJ of the Funk radio station Bounce FM in the 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, founded his record label C Kunspyruhzy in 2005 and made a cameo on the season two premiere of the hit television sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” a year later. In 2008 Clinton released what is primarily a covers album, George Clinton and His Gangsters of Love, which features guest appearances by Sly Stone, El DeBarge, Red Hot Chili Peppers, RZA and Carlos Santana. At 70, Clinton is still as funkadelic as ever, forever rocking the attire that likely influenced the Youtube oddity “Old Gregg” and the song “Love Games.” So in hindsight, we should all probably be thanking cocaine for keeping the funk weird and alive. Otherwise where would we be without such titles as Hey Man, Smell My Finger, and Some of My Best Jokes Are Friends. See you on the Mothership, jive-ass-turkey! Reported by Elijah Brumback
