Satanic Cocaine Funk

As the late Rick James once said, "Cocaine is a hell of a drug." It makes people do odd things, bad things, things they wouldn't otherwise do. It will make you sell everything from your records to your asshole. It will destroy your life faster than Satan, it will not discriminate or offer any mercy, it will ruin you. But what about the good things cocaine has done? It has provided a steady income for many Colombian farmers, and most importantly it brought us this album. That's right, what you are about to hear is pure uncut DC cocaine porno funk. Wicked Witch was the brainchild of bassist/vocalist Ricky Simms and a couple of friends spending late late nights mixing and remixing. Ricky's sleazy compositions tweaked way past anything recognizable into a disjointed haze of basement funk wankery and freebase smoke. This solid reissue collects Wicked Witch's few recordings done between 1978 and 1986. So fucking schizo-creepy and sinister in a way that only drugs can be. Like poisonous cum on black pleather. This shit's fucked up.

What a brilliant mess this stuff is. And it turns out this is exactly what I was in the mood to listen to right now. I don't know what that says about me.

Van Damned said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

This is why I keep coming back to this site.
All hyperbole aside, my life was bordering on incomplete before this post.

Tr00 fvnk ov thee Blackest Order!

Unhinged genius. Thank you!

This is fantastic, it gives the sensation of listening to multiple things at once, though these are not always multiple songs.

It reproduces all of the discomfort I imagine the 70s/80s could have brought about. And yet this stuff hits strong on me, "Vera's Back" and "Fancy Dancer" are genuinely enjoyable and probably better than some other 1980s Jazz Fusion releases that I've heard.

I should have mentioned that the reissue was done by EM records (http://www.emrecords.net) this is available on CD and Vinyl.

As the late Rick James once said, "Cocaine is a hell of a drug."

I'm pretty sure Gary Busey uttered those words a few times too.

Mickey said...

ohhh yeah dude. glad you put this up here, a friend of mine sent me this a while ago. Thousands of fucked up light-years past fucked up p-funk fuck.

BradethQ said...

Jesus fuck, this is strange.
Thank you!

Todd said...

Doggg, this is ridiculous music. The best drug songs not only rambles around semi-incoherently, but also have nice recurring freak out noises like the "drop in the bucket" sound in Vera's Back. Thanks, AES.

Herr Schindler said...

This is way dark & way cool.

Kinda like the stuff I'd imagine the P-Funk family would put out before checking in to rehab.

Old Sardul said...

Yo Aesop, this guy got written up in today's Guardian - Someone's reading this blog, and not just us if you know what I mean. See ya, -- BC

heresy IS progress said...

Surprised how downright "fusiony" vera's back is. some straight up sick jams on this mothafucka...

Van Damned said...

It's almost been two years since I commented on this same post. Awesome.

I played this album tonight and had nearly the same ecstatic reaction as two years ago. Got back on the Hearse looking for more of the same. Was disappointed none was to be found, though that second Skorpio album is pretty close, to be fair.

But I need more '70s Satanick cokesplotation fuck-funk in my life.

Can you point me in the right direction, AD? Can anybody?
