Let's Get Small....

Trouble Funk were not the first go-go band but they were the foremost ambassadors of Washington DC's unique contribution to popular music. Go Go was a blend of swinging, up-tempo '70s funk and a '60s-style horn section that was briefly popular over in the UK in the mid 80's when we were "getting small" with the likes of Trouble Funk. The bands do their thing while the musicians and audience yell a whole lot of nonsense with a strong James Brown flavour to the music. Raw, funky, percussive, full-on party music sums them up quite nicely.

Trouble Funk - Let's Get Small


  1. I do love a bit of Trouble Funk. Do you have the Live In London album, Scott? It's a belter


  2. Drew, I don't have the live album. I would imagine it would be pretty special. I only have a few tracks on Go Go comps.
