Discovered – Photos of Carleen and The Groovers

Now-Again | Jul. 16, 2010 | News |

We’ve been looking for photos of drummer Carleen Jean Butler since Egon offered the first official reissue of Carleen and The Groover’s monstrous funk anthem “Can We Rap” on The Funky 16 Corners anthology a decade ago. In the interim, we released a vinyl anthology that contained the band’s four known recordings, compiled “The Thing” on Cold Heat, and even tracked down Carleen’s first drum teacher in search of some documentation that this woman actually existed!

And now, nearly forty years after he first received these promo shots in the mail, an East Coast club owner made these two photos available for sale. They now reside in the collection of producer and funk enthusiast DJ Shadow. And they prove that Carleen did indeed play a double kick-drum – better than the rest of ’em. Take that Lars Ulrich!
