ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
00Soul is "Funk"?

Sure. Whatever works for you.

But "Funk" is an understatement. This is nasty s**t straight from the heart of Long Beach, CA. With sold out shows every week and thousands of fans, the word "understatement" is completely appropriate when describing the effect 00Soul has on the indie-music scene. They are a standout in a sea of Pop, Rock and Alternative Acts. They define "cool" in an already cool local music scene that brought you Snoop Dogg and Sublime. With a notorious reputation for the seedy side of life, it's no wonder the Long Beach music scene has embraced this band and made their song "Squad Car" the favorite at packed concerts.

"Squad Car" breaks into the rhythm of cars, crime and sex with the first downbeat. The song has all the traces of a 70's Cop Show TV theme, but only if it were on HBO. It's not explicit in it's language since it's an instrumental piece. But one gets the feeling that there is a seedy, almost primal nature to this song. That's what funk is all about. At least good funk. It's nasty!!!

00Soul get their funk out with a hypnotically solid beat, tasty bass to back it up and a "whole lotta" horn work. "Squad Car" is not short on it's cinematic value. This song plays like a movie, complete with sound effects, campy 70's dialogue and more grunts and groans than a "Shaft" movie.

"Squad Car" will introduce this "Eight Piece Brotherhood" in fine style. Their rich blend of jazz, rock and Afro-Cuban rhythms will make a permanent dent in what you use to call "Funk". At least it will "nasty" it up a bit.

Funkity, Funk, Funk!
A really nice blend of live instruments, loops, funky percussion, and turntables. Put on your dancing shoes, cause ooSoul came to make your booty shake! ooSoul is still playing around Long Beach all the time, so if your in the hood, and you hear about a show, check it out.......

Side Note..... I just picked up the BoneDaddys LP A-Koo-De-A! and it's dope, great covers of Soul Makossa and Dangwa by Manu DiBango....

Funkalicious! This band needs to be touring and spreading the love!
A friend turned me onto this CD actually a few years ago and I have been doing the same with more friends. No one can listen to this CD without shakin' their booties and falling in love with it. I would love to see them come out to Colorado and I know that we could bring a decent amount of people to the shows! I am a child of the 70's disco era and know when something is FUNKALICIOUS! Solid and outta sight, my Brothers!
