They're back...Was (Not Was) the darlings of the avant disco set and avatars of the absurd have emerged from the abyss of the recording industry with a new long-player, Boo! It's been almost 20 years since their last salvos of surrealistic soul and Jurassic dance mixes delighted and terrified nightclub crawlers and pop maniacs with the hits Walk the Dinosaur and Spy in the House of Love. Once again these shamelessly funky court jesters (featuring the original line up, plus some very special guests) are mixing it up and working without a net, performing a high-wire act that stretches from the ridiculous to the sublime. Are you scared yet?
Throughout the `80s, the motley Detroit musical ensemble led by brothers Don and Dave Was, Was (Not Was), made their mark amongst the dance music cognoscenti with a potent combination of absurdist lyrics and off-kilter funk. After years of enjoying solo success as producers and film scorers, the Was brothers return for their fifth studio album, BOO! Losing none of the quirky energy and incisive political commentary of their best Reagan-era efforts, the album is an eclectic blend of sweet soul, avant funk, and a few surprises--like Kris Kristofferson's guest appearance on the hallucinogenic country and western number "Green Pills in the Dresser." --Muze
