Produced, conceived, and recorded in the famed town of Woodstock. The idea for the band sprang from the ashes of the infamous 1999 Woodstock festival. The founding members all played there with different bands. It was apparent to each that nothing new was happening musically. The fiery aftermath had as much to do with boredom as anything else. So... they decided to take it to the stage.
"Drugs" first performance was at Rennes prestigious new music festival the TRANSMUSICALES in 2001. The French Daily LIBERATION singled out the band as being "...The festivals highlight, going back to basics with guitars, drums and dynamic vocals. Resurrecting from the graveyard the spirit of psychedelic soul explored by George Clinton in the early 1970's and taking it to new places by creating their own unique sound."
When the band returned from Europe they began recording their critically acclaimed debut album "Drugs: The Prescription for Mis-America", while touring as the opening act for George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic. That meeting of a combative funk and a laid-back psychedelicism lives up to its title. Released on their own boutique label, WEFUNK AD2K Records, the band has managed to sign it's first licensing deal with a small indie, KRAKED Records in Paris. The first review by the French journal "LE MONDE" praised the album as "reviving the psychedelic sound of the 60's but mixing it with a touch of Sly Stone and Curtis Mayfield to create their own sound, not a parody of those who came before."
