TIR 152: Andre Foxxe on Being Married to the Funk Mob


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 152 (2 parts): Longtime Parliament-Funkadelic guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer Andre Foxxe Williams. A talented child musician, he found his way into the Parliament/Funkadelic camp while still a teenager, forming the band Trey-Lewds Flastic Brain Flam with Tracey Lewis, George Clinton’s son. He later became famous for wearing a wedding gown while performing with P-Funk.

That began a long association during which Foxxe would perform with the P-Funk All-Stars and Jimmy G. and the Tackheads. The Incorporated Thang Band launched in 1986, a group comprised with P-Funk members such as Lige Curry. Foxxe was a key member signed to Warner Brothers Records, and his first solo project the “A. Foxxe Jam” was released on the Don Davis label I.T.M. The Psychedelic Ghetto Pimpz is his most recent project.

Others he has worked with include: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Too Short, Phillipe Wynne, Amp Fiddler and Tony Allen. Here, the outspoken Foxxe spills it all, pulling few punches describing his colorful P-Funk odyssey including his claim of being fired more times by George Clinton than anyone else. No funk fan will want to miss this one! Note, the video was edited as best as possible contending with some sporadic connection issues on the guest’s end.
