Fergus & Geronimo- Funky Was the State of Affairs

Stream: Fergus & Geronimo- Funky Was the State of Affairs On it's sophomore effort, Funky Was the State of Affairs, Fergus & Geronimo seem to pull out all the stops with a series of abrupt tracks, tongue-in-cheek lyrics, and some weird spots of spoken word. I didn't think the duo could get any stranger after last year's "unlearn.", but I was wrong, very wrong.

It's not necessarily a bad thing, though. The strangeness of artists like Zappa have always been a reference point, and that influence seems stronger--at least in a comedic sense--on this album. With that comparison in mind, Funky is easily Fergus & Geronimo's Lumpy Gravy.
