French Funk Flashers


32 degrees in the shade, just the right temperatures for some equally hot stuff inbetween: the timeless funky-fresh sounds of Jean-Claude Pelletier from his 1974 ultra-rare concept album Streaking!, chock-full of humid grooves, wah-wah guitars, and sharpest horns. For some dubious reason, Streaking Land reminds me of an episode from The Streets of San Francisco when Detective Mike Stone busts a marihuana dealer, takes the dope from his pocket, and says: „Hey, you wanna smoke this shit alone?"

Closely related in spirit: Passage à Tabacco from Serge’s soundtrack for the soft porn flick Madame Claude, including one of the mangiest guitars ever heard.
