That quote is from Charlie Wilson, brother of The Gap Band’s Robert Wilson, who died yesterday. A quick obit over here. Damn. If anyone knew how to utilize a bassline, it was The Gap Band. Warning: they also liked cowboy hats and sassy syncro dancing.
Bonus: Check out this official ‘Party Train’ video shot on the Venice Boardwalk in the 80s: classic popping, locking, lycra and meathead Cali sunshine culture. In a total dick-move, embedding the video has been disabled, so you gotta click here if you want to see it.
