Funkadelic – “Maggot Brain” LP
The bass-heavy psychedelic-funk fusion masterpiece. Perhaps the most famous of the albums released by George Clinton’s P-funk collective, Maggot Brain – released in 1971 – was the last to feature the original line-up. Remembered first and foremost for the sheer weight of it’s heavy, heavy, stoner-rock power; plus the mind-melting cosmic meditation that is the ten minute opus of the title track (legend has it, a tripping Clinton told guitarist Eddie Hazel to play as if he had been told his mother was dead). “One of the loudest, darkest, most intense records ever made”. True.
