New Music: ‘Ass-kicking future-funk rock’n'roll’ from the Velcro Lewis Group
The Velcro Lewis Group claim they bring “bring the harmonies of Motown, the groove of Stax, the drugs of Hawkwind, and the drive of Bohannon to their own LSD-laced barbecue of sound” adding that they play “ass-kicking future-funk rock’n’roll”, and – c’mon – we can’t better that description. In fact, we oughta give them a job.
A Chicago band led by a blind frontman and a singing drummer, think the party-hearty-Marty funk rock sounds of Rare Earth, think George Clinton’s P-funk if the ‘P’ stood for Pilsner, think… actually, don’t think, just listen. Free your mind and your etc etc etc.
Below is new track Inside My Cloud, from their 2nd full-length album, Open the Sky, which crashes parties October 15th on Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records.
