Tapeheads is probably the best music movie you’re not totally obsessed with yet. And shame on you.
It’s got everything you could possibly want in a motion picture -’60s soul legends, a phantom Menudo concert, early music video technology, John Cusack with a pedo-stache, and a full-blown rap song about chicken and waffles. Not to mention Fishbone as a country bar band…
So technically this isn’t “funk” in the strictest sense of the word (or any sense, really), but we hope you’ll forgive us and have fun with it anyway.
