    Discuss the greatness of these two groups. I hope everyone is ok with them sharing a thread instead of me creating two separate ones.

    Maggot Brain is a fantastic night driving song

    I've been so into them this summer. Had only really heard Maggot Brain and the big hits before, but maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan it's unreal how fantastic of a catalogue both groups have.

    Going to start getting into them tomorrow, been meaning to for a while.

    Would Free Your Mind, Maggot Brain and Cosmic Slop be good places to start?

    For Funkadelic, yes definitely.

    Had a first listen to Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome yesterday and it's killer.

    "Flash Light" is just one of the best songs by anyone.

    I always focus on Funkadelic more because I like the mix of funk and psychedelic rock a little more. Need to give Parliament another listen asap.

    Anything pre-Maggot brain is pretty unrepresentative, tbh. Their prime stuff is much more loose and wild.

    Other than hearing a few casual tracks, right now is my first time listening to either band in earnest. Listening to One Nation Under A Groove in full right now and it's reaaallly nice

    It’s a cliche to say this about bands but very true in their case:

    Absolutely nobody sounds quite like them
