Quit Your Job, Start A Funk Band #1

I'd like to introduce a new series here at Pet Bear Sounds: Quit Your Job, Start A Funk Band.

As you can tell by this blog, I love a wide range of music but I always have a soft spot in my heart for good ol' fashioned funk. I'm talking about the good stuff.

The sort of funk that makes you want to get up and dance. The sort of funk that makes your uncle dance like someone who is mentally suspect. The sort of funk that your parents talk about with that wistful tone in their voice (a voice that longs for the old days before your ungrateful-ass was born). The sort of pure funk that hasn't been watered-down and bastardized by so-called modern production and producers.

The sort of funk that makes you want to get up from your tiny, manila-folder-filled cubicle, say "fuck you" to your incompetent boss, get some friends together, start a funk band and leave that tiny shit-hole that the Chamber of Commerce dares to call a "town."

That kind of funk.

So, follow this series at your own risk. Listen to some funk below at your own risk. And don't blame me if you quit your steady boring job to start a funk band.

In fact, give me a call. Thanks.
