Parliament-Funkadelic Animated Promos

Saved for a rainy day or, decease in this case, cheap one in a long line of bitterly cold days, thumb I present for your inspection, these animated promos for two Parliament-Funkadelic albums, the surprisingly literal The Motor Booty Affair and Funkentelechy Vs. The Placebo Syndrome. P-Funk always had a great sense of mythology in their music, meaning that both Dr. Funkenstein and his arch-nemesis Sir Nose D’Voidoffunk are in attendance here; more like the chapters of a sci-fi serial than albums. They appear almost alien in contrast to the slick, overproduced (and quite limited) promos that are shown on, say, MTV between episodes of People Acting Awful Towards One Another.

    I can’t thank you enough for this. I am a young’un who was brought up listening to P-Funk and other such music, of which I’m very grateful for. Unfortunately everyone else my age is only likely to recognise a Parliament riff as a Snoop Dogg song or “that Pringles advert” ( – the only video I could find, I apologise if it doesn’t work), if at all. I managed to see them last year, but Gary Shider just doesn’t look as good in a giant diaper as he may have once done..

    Being the kid that always hung around the adults I listened to them growing up. I used to love when the old school R&B stations would play some P-Funk. You can’t go wrong with that. This made my day/night/whatever this 1 AM business truly is.

    Thank You. That made me smile. I’ve seen them perform with or without Mr. Clinton about half a dozen times; some of the best live shows ever!
