45-1031 :: THE GRITS

45-1031-webStrychnine b/w (I’d Walk A) Funky Mile

The Grits have been busy for years playing their raw and greasy funk and releasing some of the dopest 45s on labels like Music With Soul, Freestyle & Tropicalia in Furs. Here they come with a new psychedelic /garage edge and some blue-eyed soul vocal delights. “Strychnine” is a funked-up cover of The Sonics’ proto-punk tune that sounds as if the Meters would jam with Dusty Springfield. The flip side “Funky Mile” is a spaced out original and even further beyond all usual categories of funk music.
