Funk me up brother
being bored of my mainly rockish/punk/mod/folk/ based music library & the utter crap imo whats out there today music wise,i
gave funk a go.Sounds weird giving a type of music a try lol,i always dismissed funk as some 70's disco crap (apart from marvin gaye etc)

this track blew me away > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dmX2uhQrZs

more suggestions plz
expand my funkless mind:)

Make your funk the P-Funk!
-Parliament
-Funkadelic
-Parlaiment-Funkadelic
-George Clinton
-Tower of Power
-Isaac Hayes
-Bootsy Collins
-Sly and the Family Stone
-Curtis Mayfield


Then Fishbone took funk to the next level along with all other kids of styles.

That should get you started on a great path.;)

Dang, you just listed exactly what I would have. Great stuff, and fun to listen to. That level of musicianship is sorely lacking these days...

I can't believe no-one mentioned the "Funky President" himself - JAMES BROWN!!!

You could try finding an album by The Whitefield Brothers called "In The Raw" - which is rather good. Personally I like the Temptations albums from around 1969 to the mid-70's - extremely funky (and psychedelic too).

Also the eponymously named LP by Skull Snaps is well worth a listen if you can find a copy (originals are rare as hens teeth). Good luck!!:)

Some nice recommendations, but...let me show you something barely even known among my peers...

I'm surprised no one mentioned Fela Kuti! One of the greatest musicians of all time, IMO - I love his fusion of jazz, psychedelic, rock, and funk with African rhythms, also known as Afrobeat.

Some awesome tracks:

There's a pretty good Documentary film on him too called:
