Birth of New Wave/Postpunk–James Brown–Good Foot, plus Fatback–Backstrokin

James Brown–Good Foot

Where would the Talking Heads, new wave, no wave, and postpunk be without James Brown?  The scratchy, frenetic guitars, the syncopated drums, the loping, discofunk basslines, the screeching, the howling, the occasional horns…90% of Talking Heads, all James Brown!

Fatback–Backstrokin’

Now this is a great song.  Wonder why most radio stations play Commodores, Dazz Band, Earth Wind and Fire, etc, but leave out stuff like Fatback???
