2005 release. Funk on your face! These funk preachers are ready to shut the mouth of those who say funk groove sounds of today can't match those of the glorious past. Celofunk formed in 2002 in Madrid, but members had already had their five minutes of fame on various bands such as Super Skunk, Santa Fe, or Disky Wick. Their first intention was to re-create the sound of the big funk bands of the '70s, so they started doing covers and relentlessly playing live in sweaty clubs and discos. Here they are with their first record. Funk from C to K. Loud and proud. Celofunk have a diversity of influences such as The Meters, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Betty Davis, Lyn Collins and Bill Withers, but still have a very personal approach to the sounds of the legends, with a contemporary sound and feel. With a tight and solid line-up of eight members, Celofunk combine the soul intensity and emotion with the raw energy of funk.
