Frank Broughton, i-D, February 1994

PARLIAMENT-FUNKADELIC, P-Funk, The P -- Specially designed afronauts capable of funketizing entire galaxies. Their mothership long ago made its terrestrial connection and they are amongst us even now. Cloned by a race of super-intelligent beings, represented in Clintonian mythology by the cosmic pimp Dr Funkenstein, they are the earthly sentinels for a returning alien civilization: The guardians of the secrets of the pyramids: The true and original saviours of the Funk - and funk is getting ready to roll.
