1) Montreal funk crew Bullfrog have a reputation for just being scratch DJ Kid Koala’s backing band. It’s something they clearly don’t mind—the cover of their 2001 self-titled disc features a sticker with the famed turntablist’s name prominently displayed. In truth, though, aside from a couple of frenetic solos and cut-up cuts like “Extra Track II” and a live version of his now-classic “Music for Morning People,” Koala’s role in Bullfrog is that of just another instrument, not a scratch-happy sideshow. The sextet prides itself on integrating raw funk with DJ action, and this disc, on the Rope-a-Dope imprint, is dominated by lazy, long-limbed funk, with Koala cutting up his favorite thrift store finds in the background.
