For real. At least PBS is still ridiculous.

plus there is always the FUNKY METERS. i have never seen the social club, but i listened to some of the shows. it is good stuff, but i do think the PBS and Meters are stronger. so if he feels he needs to concentrate his energy on these things plus other solo work, all the power to him!

PS: i am really looking forward to seeing him in the jamroom on jamcruise VI, oh yeah!

George Rules... Cause George Matters! He will be the best whatever he decides to do!

Tony Hall a solid addition, I don't see this band playing many more dates after this summer. Dumpstaphunk is the real deal and now 3 of the 5 members are in NOSC.

You´re right Rich. I love the groove from NOSC, but are retrospective in their sound, playing N.O. standards. George has so many strings to play on (four that is...), and FUNK for the Future - that is no doubt DUMPSTAPHUNK.
