The Brides of Funkenstein

During his heyday as a bandleader and organizer, George Clinton had several elements of his Parliament/Funkadelic empire signed with record labels. The Brides of Funkenstein were a female group who accompanied his other bands on tours. They recorded for Atlantic from 1978 to 1980. While Chaka Khan's sister Taka Boom was once a member, the group's roster on the Atlantic sessions included Lynn Mabry and Dawn Silva. They also got assistance from the Dramatics' Ron Banks and Larry Demps. The single "Disco to Go" was number seven on the R&B charts in 1978; it was their lone hit, although the song "Never Buy Texas From a Cowboy" was probably their most interesting record. ~ Ron Wynn
