Not a lot of time for an extensive post here, largely considering that those of us living in Southern California are living on borrowed time. Reportedly, a massive earthquake is imminent based on geological records and the data collected in 1977 by Larry Graham, former bassist of Sly & the Family Stone. Graham's findings, succinctly titled "Earthquake" are collected on the Graham Central Station album, Now Do U Wanna Dance?
This amazingly thunderous noise-funk jam sounds more akin to early-90's bands like Steel Pole Bathtub and/or the AmRep roster than it does a disco-infused funk-out. If you like early Funkadelic, but want a little more "delic" in the mix, this is the sound for you. Check out the crazy freak-out in the middle. Larry Graham is a God. And, lo, he tried to warn us nearly 30 years ago of our impending doom.
Perhaps Sly was also trying to tell us something with his equally far-too-advanced recent Grammy Awards performance.
