Great early funk jam band from Columbus, Ohio,one-time labelmates (on Westbound) with Funkadelic (Junie Morrison, in fact, later joined P-Funk). Led by Leroy "Sugar" Bonner, they ruled until the funk faded in the Disco Age. One non-musical trademark, aside from Sugar's 'fro, was their LP covers - great use of the *ahem* gatefold. "Jive Turkey", "Fire", "Love Rollercoaster" (of Red-Hot Chili Peppers fame), "Funky Worm", "Fopp"... The opium den/bordello of the Mothership.
