Nappyhead Funk Army
At the Elbow Room in NYC - 4/13/01
1:30am, NYC's best funk band, NAPPYHEAD FUNK ARMY, began their set with some
"Funk Y2K Infection", followed by "Fly on the Wall"
(which featured some nasty keyboard riffs by Eric Wilson & Prez)!!
"Every Dog Has Its Day" is a new
Nappyhead Funk Army tune that borrows its melody from Funkadelic's "Comin'
Round The Mountain"......the extra-heavy bass licks by Carlton were
super-funky as well as the scorching guitar solo by Mr. John
sounded excellent with the superb lead vocals of #9 (Zack Roberson) and Tanya
Thillet!! "Up For the
Downstroke" was next, which incorporated some "Get Off Your Ass and
Jam", "Let's Take It to the Stage" and "Take Your Dead Ass
Home". "Tear the Roof Off the Sucka" was good, but "Atomic
Dog" was better with "Pumpin' It Up" incorporated into it.....Zack (or should I say "#9") sounded better on this
segment than in previous shows.......of course, Eric-Jay (background vocalist)
and Ainsley Taylor (drummer) were still funky as ever!!! Interesting enough, John was singing some funk rap and
#9 accompanied him.....WOT WAS THAT?! "Standing on the Verge of
Gettin' It On" was the last song that I could remember........I was just pissed that there were only a handful of people
that bothered to attend the show!! In addition to the poor crowd turnout, the
club shut down the Nappyhead Funk Army show at 2:30am........2:30AM????!! WOT
DA FUNK IS DAT SHIT??!! IF ONLY THE OTHER BAND GOT OFF THE STAGE EARLY, THE
NAPPYHEAD FUNK ARMY WOULD HAVE MORE TIME!!!! DAMN!!!
