The Basis Point Friday Funk installment 112 is Unbroken, Unshaven by Budos Band, who sets the tone for metal-infused funk. There are others out there with this style, but Budos is the OG, formed 18 years ago. All great funk is about heaviness, and they’re among the heaviest.
So when sh!t gets heavy — like it has for me, family, and friends this year — Budos in heavy rotation lightens the load.
Me and my sister were supposed to see Budos last weekend with our spouses, but obviously missed it. So I dedicate it to my brother-in-law Nico who still went, and my friend AR, a fellow music nut who took my ticket — and who needs light spots to move through an especially heavy family situation. Placing some pics from them below.
I hope this helps all of you get your cool back for the weekend. And let’s never let life’s pressures break us.
Huge shout to Dennis for the Friday Funk ‘Play It Now’ artwork tribute to The Budos Band…
