Funk rock gets a bad rap because of the way it’s been misappropriated by frat-friendly bands like 311 and Sublime, but when it’s good, it’s good — check your Funkadelic records for further reference. And while North Carolina’s Bubonik Funk has a long way to go before they can be mentioned in the same breath as those guys, they’re off to a pretty good start with their EP, Oddfish, Volume One; as evidenced by this track, the band’s got enough funk to live up to its name, knows how to get silly without being dumb, and will sound pretty great on the playlist at your next barbecue/hacky sack tournament/other assorted bro-down. Put a TV on your head here, and check out Bubonik Funk on the web.
