You read that right. After years of motorik rhythms, !!! stiffness, and cold artbeeps, CSC Funk Band is the Brooklyn noise-punk scene’s very first F-U-N-K band. A brand new project from USAISAMONSTER founder Colin Langenus and Talibam!’s skronko nutball Matt Mottel, CSC likes to push their Rhys Chatham and “experimental” aspects to the forefront, but they’re really just a balls-out funk band like any of the improv-heavy post-JB’s, post-Fela, post-Garcia groove-jammers that play the Bonnaroo circuit—and that’s not an insult, because these guys seriously rip. With congas and everything! Hope it goes all night! With Sam Micken’s Ecstatic Showband & Revue and Jimmy Cousins Big Band.
