Tony Gallicchio & Funknut
You know Tony Gallicchio as the source of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad's funky keyboards. But the man has got a little more for you to hear. Lucky for you, he fronts Funknut which is more organ-centric than GPGDS. "Juicy," the new album from Funknut is soul-a-plenty without the hyperbole that comes with some funk. That's not to say it doesn't get down ... way down, with Gallicchio's voice as the sole mellow down factor. And sheee-it! The list of soldiers of fortune Gallicchio assembled for this project is mighty, mighty impressive: Chris "Hollywood" English, Wil McKenna, Kurt Johnson, and Drew Bellavia, to name a few, help make this a party record you just need to plug in on repeat and boogie.
