The Godfather of Go Go

May 17, 2012

Chuck Brown died yesterday. I wrote a bit about him way back in 2007. If you’re not familiar with go go, it’s a strictly Washington DC-based scene that’s been around forever and still going on today. Once in a very great while, a go go tune will escape DC and reach the rest of the world– most notably E.U’s Da Butt in 1988.

Watch out now. This shit’s funky.


MP3: Chuck Brown- Chuck Baby

1974 from Salt of the Earth LP:
