Parliament: Uncut Funk — The Bomb
Barney Hoskyns, NME, 6 September 1986
GEORGE CLINTON is one of the great people of the 20th century. Probably you know this already. He took the funk legacy of James Brown and Sly Stone and constructed around it a brilliant fantasy of black America that mixed equal parts ghetto humour and cosmic sci-fi mindwarp. The travelling circus of his Parliament/Funkadelic mothership was one of the great satirical vehicles of our time.
