THE GRITS: Strychnine/ (I’d Walk) A Funky Mile (2012)

It’s been a while since the last drop from The Grits but proper funk filth takes a while to cook up and both cuts on this 45 are pure dirt. A-side garage rock cover Strychnine lays down a stop-starty, itching, scratching line of poison that should see off the deluded who keep insisting that MOR acid jazz is ‘deep funk’ while the super-heavy groove of B-side (I’d Walk) A Funky Mile – all minimal piano and stank guitar chops plus the occasionally fuzz-guitar wig-out – is even better. Oh yeah – now’s probably a good time to mention that both these tracks are massive sister funk classics-to-be with mod-style vox from Sophie-Adler-McKean. There don’t seem to be embeddable soundcloud players for the tracks either but there’s no need to walk a funky mile before you smile – there’s a juno player for snippets of both and vid below that. Funky hot grits! What you say? Oh just listen to the music…
