Album Notes
“The hippest thing to happen to Washington since Nixon resigned.” – Charles M. Young, Rolling Stone
Root Boy Slim (aka Foster “Ken” Mackenzie III) was certifiable and it was contagious. He could strip away your inhibitions and all common sense and you'd gladly follow him over a cliff laughing and screaming all the way - or you'd turn and run in horror at first sight. An imposing 6 foot 4, 300 pound psycho with a Yale diploma who danced like a dervish and sang like a volcanic eruption, he steamrolled into Washington DC in 1977 with a kick ass band spewing bizarre songs about instant gratification, sex, drugs, booze, politics, insanity, puking, psoriasis and mood rings with a religious fervor and manic conviction only someone who was living it could deliver.
Now at long last – available for the first time on CD – ZOOM will have you climbing the padded cell walls together with Slim and company in a 3 dimensional swirl of mind bending sound. Demented, depraved, deranged, prophetic, political, autobiographical, subversive, subtle as an express train and wall to wall outrageous, this is Root Boy Slim in prime form– with the Sex Change Band and the Rootettes spot on and in the pocket at every twisted turn.
