‘Dog’ LP set for release December 14 via Money $ex Records
Five guys jamming together, each throwing in funk-nuggets from a finely honed appreciation & a shared love of the good groove.
This studio project was compiled from a free-wheeling desire to just team up and play together, see what happens…
The holy trinity of Rhodes, Clav and live bass, all wrapped up in a heavyweight rhythm section has provided the backbone to over 50 years of ground-breaking and floor-shaking Black American music.
The Max Graef Band channels this energy with the tight efficiency of the Headhunters tag-teaming the New Power Generation, oh yeah - anyone expecting elbow patch, 6th form funk can think again, this is ‘mosquito’s tweeter’ territory folks.
From raw, P-Funkin’ jams to Punk-Funk workouts & freestyle Jazz flavours, DOG pays homage and wears it’s influences proudly, while bringing a fresh take on the foundation funk that informs this collective’s own celebrated Sample-House revival.
