BOBBY FUNK: Avocado Stains: 7”

May 23, 2018

I saw Bobby Funk a couple of years ago and was impressed at how good the band was live. It had that something special about it which helped the band stand out from so many others, both new and old. The music sounded fresh, although without being unique, and the band appeared to be having a great time on stage, which added to the infectious nature of the show. For my sins I’ve missed Bobby Funk a few times since then but this avocado shaped—I kid you not—record is a fitting reminder of what I enjoyed about them that night. With a dash of humor and irreverence, reminiscent of Wonk Unit, backed up with a hint of attitude, this is a band worth keeping an eye on. –Rich Cocksedge (TNS, [email protected], / Autonomonster,!)
