McNeal & Niles: Funktastic


Rescued from a totally obscure existence, the CD re-release of McNeal & Niles: Thurst is worth checking into it. This funk duo from Ohio released ‘Thrust” in 1979, and the album incorporates funk, disco, and new wave, and manages to sound pretty contemporary even in 2004. Some of the tracks are kinda 70’s-cop-show-chase sounding, particularly this track, “Hypertension” – moog keyboards, wah-wah guitar, loose bass. Apparently RJD2 has sampled quite a bit of this record already.
