Infectious Grooves was a band
that produced some particularly hard-edged funk
around the early 90s
. Their slap-bass riffs
inspired many a jam session
with my fellow musicians after school, way back in 1998.
The members appear (from the liner notes) to be: Mike Muir
, Rober Trujillo
, Dean Pleasants
and Adam Siegel
. Tradition has it that the whole thing is a side-project by Suicidal Tendencies
, and that seems to make sense - but I don't know any names so I can't confirm it.
I know of two albums:
Both albums have several spoken-word tracks involving a reptilian
') wannabe funkmeister
'. These are really quite funny if you're in the mood, and they're tied into the music nicely.
"Hey! Who are you? How did you get past security? This is a private session of the Infectious Grooves
"I'm Sarsippius! I'm here to do backup vocals
"What zoo did you exscape
"What zoo did I
exscape from? Do you know who I am?"
"Well listen, Silpius, nobody told us about any-"
, ya dummy
And of course, the 'Plague
That Makes Your Booty
Move...' album contains my favourite song title: 'You Lie! And Yo' Breath Stank!
