The Fatback Band

Profile:
Disco - funk band

Formed in 1970, New York City.
Active in the 70's and 80's - they released an impressive 22 albums in two decades time, at labels Spring Records, Event Records Inc., Perception Records (5) and Cotillion.
They were the band concept of innovative drummer Bill Curtis that wished to merge the "fatback" jazz beat of New Orleans into a funk band.
They had seminal hits like "(Do The) Spanish Hustle", "I Like Girls", "Gotta Get My Hands on Some (Money)", and "Backstrokin'". Their 1979 single "King Tim III (Personality Jock)" is sometimes considered the first hip hop single.
