Mango Meat - Mandrill

Legbamel Not-Pop

Did you ever wonder where Parliament Funkadelic got their inspiration? Well, in part it was from Mandrill for whom they opened in the early 70s. Songs like Mango Meat give you a great taste of what made the Brooklyn band (founded by three Panamanian brothers) so influential. As an added bonus, you get some heavy-duty funk and hardcore horns. For a Monday evening, that's just about what the doctor ordered. If you like Mango Meat have a listen to Fat City Strut from the same 1973 album.
