THE METERS a/k/a THE FUNKY METERS of Nawlins, LA.

Zigaboo Modeliste - Drums

They have their own legacy plus they were the crack studio band for Lee Dorsey and Dr. John as well. Influences reaching from John Scofield to RHCP.

George Porter Jr. - "I guess our tracks are used so much in hip-hop because they were serious rhythm tracks waiting for a melody. It was like having a window without the curtains, and our music was serious great windows."

More from Porter - "Zig wasn't the original drummer; the other drummer developed some illness and went into the hospital. Zig came to sit in with us for two weeks, and when the guy came back and heard Zig play, he said, 'Oh man, I can't go ask for that job back'."

Recorded on Josie Records til 1971.
Then on Reprise.

      I liked the video.

      I found myself bouncing to the beats. I remembered most of that music, but differently.

      When I went to parties in the late '70s and early '80s they mixed that music.

      By the way is Clap your hands the sample from one of A Tribe called Quest tracks? If so, so cool.

      Looking forward to reading your other Hubs. There are a lot. LOL.
