EP153: Funkadelic “Maggot Brain”

A record that needs little introduction.  Just say “Maggot Brain” and the album cover of an afro’d woman, screaming and buried to her neck in dirt immediately comes to mind as does Eddie Hazel’s indelible guitar that blares for ten+ minutes on the opening title track.  We discuss the classic for more than twice the original albums runtime.  Time well spent.  


Disclaimer:  We somehow completely neglected to discuss Funkadelic’s influence on 90’s West Coast Hip-Hop and on Dr. Dre’s G-Funk sound in particular.  A ridiculous omission that we’ll have to correct on a future episode.
