Brought to you by FUNKNSTUFF.NET and hosted by Scott “DR GX” Goldfine — musicologist and author of “Everything Is on THE ONE: The First Guide of Funk” ― “TRUTH IN RHYTHM” is the interview show that gets DEEP into the pocket with contemporary music’s foremost masters of the groove.

Featured in TIR Episode 140 (Parts 1 and 2): An original member of the kings of go-go, Trouble Funk — bassist-composer-vocalist Tony Fisher. For the uninitiated, go-go music originated in Washington D.C. during the 1970s as a blend of funk, R&B and old-school hip hop with a heavy emphasis on percussion.

In addition to Trouble Funk’s tracks like “Drop the Bomb” and “Pump It Up,” mainstream go-go hits included Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers’ “Bustin’ Loose” and E.U.’s “Da Butt.” Here, Big Tony tells all there is to tell about the go-go music genre, Trouble Funk and himself.
