Mind Funk - Mind Funk

Mind Funk
Released on 25/01/10. 1991 saw the release, in chronological order, of Smashing Pumpkins Gish, Pearl Jam's Ten and Nirvana's Nevermind which would herald the arrival of a new musical force called grunge.

Mind Funk were never a grunge band per se - but they did release this, their fine debut album on March 12, 1991, and with a more alternative frame of mind being prevalent in rock music at the time, after all, this is a story that pulls together seemingly disparate musical threads from Soundgarden, Nirvana, Celtic Frost, M.O.D. and Ministry.

Obviously, given the timing of the release of their self-titled debut album, all eyes today fall on the shoulders of guitarist Jason Everman who had featured in both Nirvana and Soundgarden and whilst this did help garner press interest for Mind Funk, it did unfairly push them into the grunge arena.

In truth, the band began life as Mind Fuck. Guitarist Louis Svitek had worked with fellow guitarist Jason Coppola in Chemical Waste, and the pair had worked with bassist John Monte in thrash crossover band M.O.D. Singer Pat Dubar from the straight-edge outfit Uniform Choice and drummer Reed. St. Mark, who had drummed with legendary avant-garde Swiss metallers Celtic Frost.

This reissue of the bands still impressive debut album, plus three bonus tracks, invokes memories of a time in rock music when anything new and unconventional seemed possible.

This 1988 album takes everything that was metal at the time and is a classic combining thrashing guitars and pounding percussion indicative of the underground thrash movement of the time. It has more riffs than Anthrax and undertones of the hair metal that was riding the charts at that time. It is a classic and has everything that makes metal great! CD2 – The Privilege Of Power. This 1990 album saw the band augment their state-of-the-art heavy metal sound with horns, courtesy of the Brecker Brothers and Tower Of Power.
