A friend and I were discussing Funkadelic records and I thought that maybe I should investigate the state of my Funkadelic vinyl. Like the band itself, it’s kind of a mess. Even though I’ve thinned out duplicates here and there, I still somehow have four copies of the first album. One is original and playable, one is a clean reissue, one is original and cracked in half from when a shelf fell on it, and one is just a sleeve with no record. Yeah, it’s bad. The biggest prize here is my copy of “One Nation Under A Groove” that Funkadelic artist Pedro Bell signed after my group Temporary Services interviewed him a bunch of years back. He wrote: “Markodelic, May the bionic fist of zeepalogical audacity propell your entity up and beyond the Call of Booty!” Words to live by.
