Lyrics
tear that mother out the wall the ship is sinkin bridge is laggin
tear that mother out the wall electricity is zappin me
tear that mother out the wall the stage is set this stage i'm bettin
tear that mother out the wall got a bad earth the hail is wettin

zap pow zing read it in a magazine
zap pow zine read about it all online
zap pow zing on the radio and tv
zap pow zine read about it all the time

repeat

not wall to wall not tree top tall got our ears on on off the wall
not wall to wall not tree top tall get on the floor on off the wall
comin up a gust of wind comin up a gust of wind again
comin up another stage get of the wall it's the next stage

repeat

Wah lyrics
Wild words. Tongue twister funk. I can imagine a stage full of funkster wailing about tearing that mother off the wall as George Clinton kept putting on a bigger and bigger hat on to make the funk happen. Fun happening...

All hail the P-Funk
Stream of conscious lyric delivery is the high point of this. Fun stuff. Wishing for a bit more thumping bass in the eq, but otherwise I dig the funk drone.

in 1981
I drove around listening to dj flash on ktkr out of taft. the am signal was crackly and faded in and out but the music was incredible. much better than the rock of the era. my friends thought I was nuts but I knew I'd tapped into the zeitgeist. thriller came out a year or two later and killed it for me. when everyone knew it wasn't fun anymore

I Owe You 20 Bucks
Man, this is FUNK-KAY!!

This sounds 30 years old, good. In fact, not only do I hear the Rick James, I hear protohip hop - Everyone copied you. You are funkalicious and you have an awesome vocal style.

Thanks for my new favorite funk download.

Great vocal hook! The backing track has an early Prince vibe! Great use of old-school analog synth sounds.
