#271: Mothership Connection by Parliament


Mothership Connection by Parliament (1975)

Favorite Track(s): "P. Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)" and "Unfunky UFO" and "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker)"

Thoughts: I wants to get funked up! We've had George Clinton's first band Funkadelic, but I think this is our first Parliament album (hopefully not the last!).

This album has perhaps the best funk song of all time, "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker)" which is just amazing. I think "P. Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)" comes in at a close second. This album is just full of delightful sci-funk. It was over too soon for me.

Whenever I think of Parliament and how they got 'the Funk', I think of this ridiculous little story-cartoon from The Mighty Boosh, told to us by Old Gregg:

Is This Better Than Help!?: Oh yeah. Super funky. Makes me wanna dance.
