Today is Eddie Hazel’s birthday. Now watch one of the greatest live performances to which you shall ever bear witness.

Seriously, THIS is as good as it gets. Thirteen minutes of vintage Funkadelic, running through a medley of I Got A Thing, What Is Soul, I Just Want To Testify, I Was Made To Love Her, Friday Night August 14th, Music For My Mother which degenerates into a full blown Psychedelic Gospel and includes nods to The Right Time and It’s Your Thing, while George in the throws of the holy ghost and some seriously heavy blotter writhes on the ground, whistling and speaking in tongues. Yep, it’s that kinda show. I dunno how a band can be this loose and tight at the same time.

There is a terrifying irony in the misappropriation of these lyrics, but make no mistake, France is not Nazi Germany, and these murderers are no heroes.
