Monophonics 4/9/13 Lexington, KY @ Willie’s

Monophonics

Today I’m hitting you with a double shot of psychedelic West Coast funk. Along with Orgone (see my post from earlier today), Monophonics are in the vanguard of current California acts that are bringing their own style of psychedelic funk and soul to the rest of the world. If you think funk is dead (see Funkatopia’s recent conversation starting article), these bands will definitely prove you wrong!

Lettuce conquers Bear Creek Music Festival with 2 nights of face melting psychedelic funk

Over the course of two cold November nights in the Florida swamp, psychedelic funk super group Lettuce provided the soundtrack for an epic multi-night rage. Keeping the crowd in their palm with “classic” Lettuce tunes and busting out several new ones, the band was as fresh as ever, and primed to hit the recording studio just a few weeks later. The performance at these sets was so spot on that I’ve heard rumblings of a possible live release bonus disc to coincide with their forthcoming new album.

Here I bring you 74 minutes of video culled from both nights, including sit-ins by George Porter Jr. and Nigel Hall. This should get everyone primed for Bowlive III this week. Enjoy!
