Phenomenal Handclap Band – ‘Unknown Faces At Father James Park’

Regurgitated psyched out dustbowl funk

Imagine if, like PHB, you made a virtue out of re-appropriating psyched out dustbowl funk, regurgitating it for an audience of your fresh faced but ultimately hollow-hearted peers who stifle laughter at your sheggings (that’s shiny leggings – fashion ed). Would you continue to make music – forcing reviewers to be mean and feel shit – or would you think wait a minute, fuck the Incredible Bongo Band, I want my life back? I think we all know the answer.
