    Quinteplus released 2 albums? Both have some nice Soul-Jazz on them.

    Yes, 2 albums, and recently they released a live recording from 1972, CD-only.
    I could make mp3s and

    I like these guys.

    Are you talking about the 80s LP press of a live performance? Or there's a CD too?

    It took me a while to get their good LP. $40 but it's in not so great shape and had to be shipped from japan. Supposedly "EX" but in reality, VG.

  • 25 Bermuda - The New Bermuda Stealers "Life"

    There is nothing remotely funky about this LP.

    this one confuses me

    Dominica & Dominican Republic are the same unless you have time travel capabilities

    9 Antigua and Barbuda - Melody's "Sing Along with Melo" has an Antiguan backing singer and bass player. It is a calypso-funk-christmas LP, with the stand out(ish) track being "Funky New Year"

    38 Cameroon - Manu DiBango was born there.

    190 Samoa - gonna have to go with Boo-Ya Tribe on that one I think

    205 Spain - Barrabas

    241 Venezuela - possibly Manny Delgado y su Grupo.




    I'll have a look for some more central american quasi-funk

  • motown67motown67 4,513 Posts
    Can add:

    14 Australia Renee Geyer Band & Skylight

  • motown67motown67 4,513 Posts
    Also there's Great Britain and the United Kingdom???? They get to be on the list twice?

    Dominica is a seperate island above St Lucia and Martinique (and below Guadaloupe). Dominican and Haiti are on the same island. I've been to both places and they're not the same.

    Northern Ireland isn't. Would it be Thin Lizzie?

    Hey, soon we'll need different Iraqs as well.

    I stand corrected. Is Dominica funkier than D.R.? J Casimiro does some merengue with a hint of a funk bassline.

    yes

    K in Canada.

  • I'm looking for Filipino funk to impress my gf. I got the Please S/T, and the entire Puto Bong Bong catalog , but does anyone know of anything else?

    dakilla was a funky philiphino rock band. Not straight out funk but really funky rock. I don't know if that really helps you out.

    There was actually a 45 from Iran (or was it Iraq) on Ebay some time ago that was a pretty solid standard funk cover of a James Brown tune. There may have been some talk of it at fryers board, but I can't find it.

  • SPlDEYSPlDEY Vegas 3,262 Posts
    This could be the ultimate diggers guide. You could be anywhere in the world and know of at least one band to keep a look out for.

    Is this really a good thing? A cheatsheet? Now herbs all over the world can become shitty ebay sellers.
