Sell Out Pop
on 22 January 2007
During the 1970's Kool & The Gang were one of THE funk bands - heavy bass lines, loud 'fatback' drumming, jazzy horns, whistles but NO singing!
Great songs included Funky Music, Hollywood Swinging (which had a few vocals) Jungle Boogie etc etc.
Then they acquired a singer (James 'JT' Taylor) & released the pop drivel on this album.
Celebration: just about OK, still quite funky
And thats it:
Massive hits include:
Cherish: sentimental pop twaddle
Ladies Night: inane disco pap
Joanna:sentimental pop twaddle
Which just shows that sometimes you have to choose between great music & great pay cheques!
