The Funkstamatics are ready for lift off!
It’s been a bumpy ride for us, with a few setbacks and a lot of hard work but … our new album is finished! And boy are we pleased. This time we really plundered our vinyl collections for inspiration. From Meters-style raw Hammond grooves and James Brown breaks to spacy jazz-funk in a Herbie Hancock vein, lazy New Orleans rhythms, filthy funk rock guitars and even a hit of boogie/disco … it’s all there on our upcoming album Lift Off. So what if our guitar player needed physical therapy on his arm after recording the hyperactive title track? Nothing can stop the hardest rockin’ jazzed-up funk band in the Netherlands. We’re ready for Lift Off. Are you?
Once again, we presented the album at Amsterdam’s legendary Paradiso. It was an amazing night! Lift Off is released on CD (distributed by Painted Dog Records) and as a digital release. A vinyl album will follow later in the year. And of course we’ll be touring in support of the album. So stay tuned!
