5 September 2015, No. 122, The Soul Searchers, ‘If It Ain’t Funky’

I’m always pleased when the group behind an iconic break turns out to have other great tunes. And I wish there were more tunes like this on this list; we’ll take funky jazz burners with sparse and repetitive vocals all day. “If It Ain’t Funky” don’t you know we can’t use it now? The Soul Searchers, led by the godfather of go-go Chuck Brown, lay it down at No. 122.
