Brothers on the Slide might just be among the top three funk songs I have ever heard. It’s like that song you play at full blast in your car with the windows down if you’re feeling particularly invincible, or like the one you play on your headphones as you walk down the street because you know today is your day. You know, that day where nothing is going wrong and you look good and you even remembered to shave and tie your shoes this morning. It’s impossible not to groove to it – this song was not designed for you to stand still. And that’s all before the brass section comes in…! Here’s to Cymande, that band from Guyana and Jamaica that took London by storm in the early seventies. Here’s to the eclectic funk that they’ve created. Music like this isn’t made anymore…
