Welcome back Mr Was, Mr Was and Friends.

It's been a long time huh ?

Reliable musical historians would have us believe that the band broke up
sometime after the release of their last studio album 'Are You OK ?'
in 1990 but I have a deep unverifiable suspicion that the explanation
for their almost 20 year absence is, strange though it may seem, somewhat simpler.

I think the reason we havn't heard from them is that they just...well...erm...FORGOT !

Now forgetting can happen for any number of reasons; the mind can play
all sorts of tricks and none of us are getting any younger but on the
evidence presented to us in their new album 'BOO' I have come to the conclusion that between THEN and NOW there must have been some very serious smokin' going on !

Listeners may not absolutely require the following credentials to appreciate this album but a passing aquaintance with at least one or two of them may help :

1) You did at least two tours of duty in Vietnam.

2) You have extensive knowledge of Mr Stone and his Family's musical legacy.

3) You are a devotee of facial hair and wear sunglasses AT ALL TIMES.

4) You have a passion for herbalism which extends beyond the packet
of stale Nag Champa incense sticks hidden at the back of one of
your kitchen drawers since 1969.

5) You possess a pristine and unparalled collection of Robert Crumb comic books.

Getting the picture people? This disc is one helluva phunkalicious feast
for serious groovers, stoners and students of the surreal everywhere !

(Having said that I'm none of those things and I love it too!

You have to hand it to Don and David Was... the boys' have got the funky, jazz-fusion soul brother vibe down in straight aces. Man, I cannot get over their new album "BOO!" - they're first new studio album since 1992. Simply put, it's a mindblower.

The minute you slap the CD on, out pops a the funky soul workout "Semi Interesting Week", complete with soul backing vocals, guitar and a cooler-than-now horn section. You begin to ask yourself, "The only other band who can pull this kind of funky stuff off, is Steely Dan, but even the Dan are too clinical sounding when it comes to the rough edges of Was (Not Was)."

Second track which has 'hit single' written all over it, is like a throwback to Booker T. and the MGs or the Temptations. "It's A Mircale" is like a wake up call to the authentic Detroit soul sound of yesteryear, horns a pumping, great vocals from Sweet Pea Atkinson and Sir Harry Bowens.

Third track, I'm totally sucked in. "Your Luck Won't Last" - probably the most cynical song title of the year, is the kind of stuff Prince should be doing. It's like a cross between Cameo's "Word Up" and something off the "Sign O' The Times" album. Retro modern, funky, electro wah wah heavy LA cool. Was (Not Was) reign supreme.

Make no mistake, the band show their true feathers with another colour when the fourth track hits the speakers. "From the Head to the Heart" is the only ballad "There's a story in the paper about a young boy laying dead. He tried stealing a TV set, when he should have been in bed."

It's like a merry-go-round New Seekers vibe, lots of piano and strings. The perfect chill out track after you return from an expensive restaurant with bad service and lots of ugly people staring at each other.

Thank goodness! With Was Not Was you never know just how far off the wall the brothers will go. While I don't enjoy the 'way out' examples of their sense of humour, thankfully much of this CD is musically right out of the top drawer. Funky and sensitive in the same package, this CD is more superb than absurd!

Not as good as some of the old stuff but a welcome return by the Was Bros. As a big fan 15 years is a long wait, but the old stuff stands the test of time. This is really good stuff and worth a listen, and if you like this get the back catalogue as well as some of it's priceless. Only downer is there is no verison of Out Come the Freaks - there was one on every album and a couple of other single versions as well. Come on guys make the wooodwork squeek one more time!
