    Fuzz Acid & Flowers :
    Born in 1941 in North Carolina, George Clinton formed a doo-wop group, the Parliements, in the mid-fifties. After several line-up changes the Parliements had to wait until 1967 before they charted for the first time with the soul single (I Just Wanna) Testify. In 1968, Clinton formed Funkadelic and signed with Westbound, a new label created in Detroit by Armen Boladian (they also released several Teegarden and Van Winkle albums).
    Funkadelic (for "Funk" and "Psychedelic") tried, rather successfully, to merge soul, funk, rock and psych and will interest fans of Sly And The Family Stone and Hendrix (a major influence on their guitarist, Eddie Hazel). In a slightly different style, another black group, The Temptations, tried to do the same with their Psychedelic Shack period.

    Funkadelic kept on recording for Warner during the '70s and early '80s. Their albums were generally housed in highly colored sleeves and the musicians were among the first to wear exuberant science fiction outfits, with strange boots, glasses, feathers etc.. A very prolific musician but also an advised businessman, George Clinton managed to sign during the same core of musicians to different labels and therefore also formed Parliament(Invictus and Casablanca), the Brides Of Funkenstein (Atlantic), the Parlets, Botsy Collins Rubber Band (Warner) and the Horny Horns.
    It should be noted that this George Clinton musn't be confused with the Californian white keyboards player who formed Timber, was an active sessionman and today composes soundtracks. It's also worth mentioning that the group backed Ruth Copeland on her album I Am What I Am (Invictus) 1971. ~ (Stephane Rebeschini)
