Quintron - Too Thirsty 4 Love - New LP

Regular price $ 16.00 $ 0.00

"Anyone who thinks there are no new worlds to conquer in funk obviously hasn't heard of Quintron and his partner in entertainment Miss Pussycat. Rather than find new ways to borrow from old records (which has been the dominant theme in R&B over the past decade or so), Quintron has constructed a whole new kind of hoodoo out of his bank of beat-up keyboards and cast-off rhythm machines accompanying stories that will strike wonder or fear into your heart, and with Miss Pussycat adding enthusiastic hand percussion and backing vocals to this music (along with what is by all accounts a pretty entertaining puppet show during their live gigs), how can you lose? Too Thirsty for Love is another low-tech, high-energy explosion of enthusiasm from Quintron and Miss Pussycat, and while the cover artwork might lead you to believe these folks have hopped onto the Twilight bandwagon in hopes of courting America's youth, don't fret -- there's no bloodsucking on this album, just lots of groove, and the most frightening story comes in the inspired tale of terror "The Boss Wants to Party with You" (accompanied by a churchy organ tone and the most flatulent rhythm sample in history), though the spooky "Walk to the Harvest" does come close. If hearing Quintron lay down an impressive old-school groove while his backing vocalists chant "Dirtbag! Dirtbag!" behind him doesn't warm your heart, or his fake British accent on "Sunday Night" doesn't make you laugh, you clearly weren't cut out for this sort of inspired playfulness, but if you're missing the days when creative weirdness didn't have to be pretentious, then Too Thirsty for Love may be just what you're looking for." --
