fhqwhgads Here's the New Year's Run from 1997, which could be considered the coda to the 1997 cowfunk experiment (particularly, Fall was chock-full.) Then again, maybe the Island Tour is that coda, or some transitional anomaly? Anyway, this is a great show. Theme From the Bottom > Fluffhead and Run Like an Antelope from the first set are the big draws there, in my opinion, though Crossroads is novel, and Cars Trucks Buses benefits from a healthy dollop of murk on the curb. I can't help but recall @waxbanks' neologism, "mycological languor," when referring to this Down with Disease. It's kind of a yawning, psychedelic take on funk, which his phrase captures magically. Tube is extended quite a bit, considering its near-lifespanning status as a short funky rocker. You Enjoy Myself also lends itself well to "da funk."
