Deep Fried 5 w/FunkonautsR&B/Soul
Just to lay it out for you, funk is not a singular concept — there’s deep funk, jazz funk, Afro-funk, party funk ... a lot of different funkin’ variants, if you know what we mean. And we, in our infinite funkitude, are going to name the Funkonauts’s brand “sound-guy funk.” Having less to do with the deep grooves of James Brown and more to do with the over-the-top goofiness and unremitting string-slapping of Primus, sound-guy funk is the domain of music school graduates and the sort of guys who spend all weekend at Guitar Center but never buy anything. It’s not funk for dancing, and it’s definitely not going to get you laid — unless you want to fuck a sound guy. If you have a proclivity for rattling off model numbers and amperages, then this is gonna be your joint.
