By 1990, the rising success of Punk-Funksters Red Hot Chili Peppers ensured this San Francisco underground outfit would gain a modicum of notoriety.When hot-item-of-the-moment Bill Laswell agreed to produce their debut album Stinky Grooves, bringing along with him funk legends Bootsy Collins and Maceo Parker for cameo appearances, the spotlight got even hotter.

Mindfunk were a metal band containing members of Soundgarden and Celtic Frost. Their name was originally intended to be Mindf*ck but due commercial pressures they changed it to Mindfunk. Unfortunately this lumped them in with the burgeoning funk metal scene - everyone from RHCP, Infectious Grooves, Fishbone, Mordred etc. - but they had little in common with any of those bands.

London-based acid jazz quartet the Sandals only lasted for one album, but their ability to sign with a major label and score a pop hit with their single “Feet” was an early indication that trendy club music could comfortably move from the hipster fringes into the mainstream. Naturally, some despise them for this, but the group’s two releases, the full-length Rite to Silence and the EP Cracked, are superb early-’90s dance records.

24-7 Spyz (pronounced “twenty-four-seven spies”) are a crossover band from the South Bronx, New York City, formed in 1986, originally consisting of Jimi Hazel (guitar), Rick Skatore (bass), Kindu Phibes (drums), and P. Fluid (real name, Peter Forrest) (vocals). The fact that they were African-Americans playing variations of heavy metal and punk along with rhythm and blues, soul, and hip-hop led critics to compare them to bands such as Living Colour, Bad Brains, and Fishbone. The band is best known for mixing soul, funk, reggae, and R&B with heavy metal and punk music.

Living Colour werd in 1983 opgericht en brak met hulp van Mick Jagger door met het album ‘Vivid’. Mick produceerde twee nummers op dat album en genereerde veel media-aandacht. Maar het is dankzij bands als Living Colour dat zorgde voor muzikaal open minded klimaat waarin uiteindelijk grote bands als Rage against the machine en Faith no More hun muziek kon ontwikkelen. Hun unieke mix van hardrock, funk, reggae, electro(-nica) en zelfs jazz blijft tot op de dag van vandaag brandend actueel.
