George Clinton & The P-Funk Allstars: Hammersmith Odeon, London

Simon Witter, New Musical Express, 17 February 1990

GEORGE CLINTON once said, explaining his orchestration of an 18-piece band, "Offer great musicians the possibility of order and anarchy on the same plate, and they'll go for it every time". In theory this is fair enough, but when the anarchic element extends to eight of the band not even turning up for the gig, then things have gone a bit far.

Total word count of piece: 538
