Afroskull is greasy persuasion and bad gris-gris. A New York City
funk/rock collective by way of New Orleans, the ‘Skull is a sonic gumbo
that is one part Funkadelic and one part Black Sabbath with generous
helpings of Zappaesque runs and jazzoid horns. The interplay of their
heady musicianship and
fat bottomed grooves helps to keep les bon temps rouler all night long.
Born of saintly happenstance and house party jam sessions in The Big
Easy, Afroskull has been intent on setting about the musical canvas
with broad strokes and a menacing palette for more then a decade.
Indulging in the sweet cross pollination of musical genres, they have
created a hybrid sound they can call their very own. Taking their name
from the perceived halo, that well worn LP fade, which framed the
shrouded skull on the back cover of “Steppenwolf Live,” the band, in
one word conceived a moniker that spoke to the heavy boogies they were
cranking out on a regular basis.-Afroskull.com
