Trouble Funk - Drop the Bomb (1982)

Last weekend the sun was blazing here on the south coast, temperatures crept up above 20C and I got a bit of a tan. This fantastic album got some play in my house and a great time was had by all.

When I was in my teens in the North-East of England (a small town called Bishop Auckland to be precise), Trouble Funk were big with the local B-Boys (there were maybe 5 or 6 of them in the mid-'80s) along with Schooly D, Kraftwerk and Run DMC. Trouble Funk make an almighty noise, theirs is a weird brand of disco-funk - heavy on the polyrhythmic percussion, fat bass and simple call and response vocal lines.
If the sun is out where you are, then you might want to give this a go.

'Pump Me Up' is my favourite track, so here it is:


01 Hey Fellas
02 Get On Up
03 Let's Get Hot
04 Drop The Bomb
05 Pump Me Up
06 Don't Try To Use Me

Get it HERE.

Trouble Funk were my favorites concerning 80s funk, even a little bit better than Defunkt (for the young soul).


Bishop Auckland, BBoys, I may have been one of them, though mid to late eighties for me. We were the Graff writers.

Can't beat a bit of gogo, i'll give this a listen

For anyone wandering through this old post. File this under "Go-Go" music. It's a regional music style from the Washington DC area.

Cheers mate. It weren't easy being a B-Boy back then. Later on I saw Schoolly D supporting B.A.D. He got bottled off stage by the rock crowd. Although his very first words were 'Rock'n'Roll livin is a thing of the past, so all you long haired faggots can kiss my ass'! He'll always be a legend to me for this.
