King Butcher – Spud-U-Like (12″)


Gang of Four vocalist does some funk rock!

From 1988 and a one-off, independent release from Jon King (Gang Of Four), Martin Bird (guitar), Phil Butcher (bass and member of Iggy Pop’s backing band) and Monti (drums who went on to form a favourite band of mine, Sulpher – with Rob Holliday)

So the main track rocks out with a bit of squelchy synths and funky drumming. More funk than rock. B-side, “Twinkie Land”  has West Coast punk/psychobilly vibe to it, with added glockenspiel? “Gravity..” is more of a clipped rock tune, with horns et al.
