Hello funksters,

Is it me, or are the Brand New Heavies transformed themselves from a
decent funk band to a cheesy, bland bag of sold out shite pop-soul?

I used to love the Heavies, they were one of the reasons I got into funk
in the first place, but the shit they are now making is so ridiculously
crap that they must be under the influence of some record company bigwig
who doesn't know his arse from his elbow and is demanding radio-friendly
tunes for the masses.

I'm all into Acid Jazz and other funk acts getting recognition, but
jesus, don't lose the funk just to get in the charts!!!

Am I going over the top here or do any of you people agree with me?!!
