Defunkt - Illusion

Is Kim Clarke not the coolest thing on two legs? Her phenomenal bass-playing totally put the funk in Defunkt. This is the definition of tight. They were, back in the early-80s, the definition of Hip, representing as they did the Post-No-Wave-New-Wave-Jazz-New York-Funk (or whatever it was called) scene. 

That's Joseph Bowie on trombone, band leader and younger brother of the Art Ensemble of Chicago's Lester Bowie (RIP), who I once met in the bar at Ronnie Scott's but was too tongue-tied to speak. Thankfully, I saw both bands at their best. 

Every home should have a copy...
