Family Affair - Chuck Brown
I guess that I've never really paid attention. Sure, I caught on to a lot of good music over the years, but so much stuff just zoomed straight past me without me noticing. This cut is from a 1986 vinyl release, well knock me other with a feather.
I love the attitude in this Go-Go music. It all sounds so enthusiastic, and impromptu. There's usually a kit drummer in there, but not always. There's always a few amateurs in the mix, playing plastic five-gallon paint cans, bottoms up. It's happy, man, this music brings the party. RIP, Chuck. In 1986 he was fifty-years-old, BTW. Dude died at seventy-five, still making a living. I do love a happy ending.
