The D.C. Arkestra

What Band - Track 4 (from 03-27-09 @ CFE bootleg 2009)

I wish Go Go bands would channel Sun Ra's synth ghost more often. What Band are one of my favorite D.C. crews who's material didn't fall into my lap until the beginning of this summer. This live at CFE bootleg contains some great Gucci joints that are worth hearing, but this untitled jam has the congo beat saying aye through a flanger pedal. Like every band in Washington they emit the BYB rap emulation influence, but I hear a lot of old-school Junkyard Band in these guys too.
