The Monophonics definitely have a way of getting inside your brain – using a cosmic slop of fuzzy guitars and funky basslines to eat away your grey matter more than a maggot inside your cranium! Yet even past that heavy Funkadelic reference, they've also got a richer vibe too – elements of 60s psych mixed in with their funk – particularly in the way that the younger generation's been re-digging crates from the early 70s these days – especially some of the more farther-flung tracks from the global underground. There's slight Afro elements at times, garagey bits at others, and even some well-timed rhythms that help the whole thing have a good sense of focus – and save it from the overindulgence that toppled the hippie generation before they even got started. Titles include "Mirage", "Bang Bang", "Temptation", "In Your Brain", "Sure Is Funky", "There's A Riot Going On", "Say You Love Me", "They Don't Understand", and "Thinking Black".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Stardom seems eminent with this fierce funky combo – a quintet of players with a deep love of southern sounds from the 60s – particularly the best grooves coming out of Memphis or New Orleans! The mix of instrumentation features tight trumpet, tenor, and guitar – and although the ... CD

Game Of Life
Capitol/PTG (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy
Great lost work from T-Connection – recorded after their big early fame on TK Records, but with a groove that's maybe even better overall! The ensemble is much smaller this time around – not a large funky group, but just a quartet – and one with a tight focus and jazzy groove ... CD
