The group throws in bits of familiar sounds from James Brown’s R&B to George Clinton’s funk mixed in with snazzy guitar lines favored by Santana and Booker T & the MG’s party rock into their sonic stew. They call this “Eucalyptus Funk”. Vinyl specializes in a pumping Hammond B3 organ. Mostly instrumental, their music is wide-ranging and creates a funky groove with an old-school flavor. The Fog Shack volumes are remix albums with a hip-hop feel featuring music by Bernie Worell and Les Claypool.

Album Review

Valley, California. Vinyl’s live shows prove the band has a reigning influence over the bumper crop of no-nonsense, tight yet fluid improvisational music filled with funky, fun instrumental riches.
