420 Funk Mob
The 420 Funk Mob is Clip Payne’s off days project that features a revolving cast of all star musicians that have include Bowie, D’Angelo, Outkast, Amy Winehouse, Lenny Kravitz, Bad Brains, Bootsy Collins, Kung Fu, Muzik Mafia posse, musicians from his other critically acclaimed band DRUGS and of course Parliament/Funkadelic members.
“What began as a side trip for Parliament-Funkadelic’s Michael Clip Payne has evolved into one of the most versatile jam bands around, a Family Stone-meets-The-Dead vehicle that frees your mind - - so that your ass, of course, can follow. Some of the finest original funk this side of Sly Stone, Larry Graham, and the Godfather of Soul. The 420 Funk Mob melds the sound with some Sixties psychedelia, a bit of Sun Ra“arkestration”, performed by a revolving cast of former P Funk members, and masterful musician friends. Jam after jam, style after style, they sync up. One collective under a frequently hypnotic groove” Jim DeMarco
“The Parliament/Funkadelic legacy lives on with the formation of two spin off bands, the 420 Funk Mob and Drugs…….Arranged with filtered vocals, psychedelic melodies, gut-wrenching rhythms, wah-wah pedals, thick bass lines, and Clips coarse dense tone, the 420 Funk Mob and Drugs sound like a medley between a spunky Grateful Dead, and a Jimi Hendrix style jam session.” University of Miami Hurricane
