"Gimme That Funk # 12

It's crazy to think about the path (pre-internet) of how this 1975 obscure gem of a tune came to get covered by an obscure post-punk band from Manchester, UK called 'A Certain Ratio' in 1980. Regardless, this is one of the fiercest breaks this side of an hawaiian wave..This one's the kind of funky 45 you won't find every day! A killer funk track that was sampled early on, cut by this obscure group as their only release for a major label! The track's got monster basslines, funky hooks that are totally South Bronx, and a heavily percussive sound that will take you to the brink and back again!....enjoy!
