X-Rated High School Funk – Marvin Whoremonger, LP #3 In Now-Again Reserve Shipping Now!

Now-Again | Oct. 5, 2016 | News | ,

15-17 year old Las Vegas high school kids meet a transient vocalist to create X-rated, basement funk. One of the most sought after funk LPs gets shining treatment as part of Now-Again Reserve: a deluxe vinyl subscription. Shipping now!

SUBSCRIBE: NOW-AGAIN RESERVE – there are a limited amount of “Catch Me Up” subscriptions still available to get you the entire run of NOW-AGAIN RESERVE releases.

Here’s the story of one of funk’s most sought-after albums: Marvin Whoremonger is a concept-piece executed by a Vegas hustler, pairing the troubled musings of a transient vocalist (Marvin Neroes) with the exuberant funk of a teenage trio. Much of the album was recorded in a single take, then embellished by session musicians in Hollywood with synthesizers and a large horn section.

Producer Cholly Willians declared in the liner notes that the album would lead to international stardom for all involved. When Marvin Whoremonger was released in 1976, behind a garish, anonymous jacket, it failed immediately. Forty years later it has aged well, and stands as an immediately accessible – yet bizarre – exercise in late-period, real funk music.

Rob Thomsett will be the fourth release of Now-Again Reserve, set to ship January 18th, 2017/strong>

    Great!! But is this subscription only? I don’t hope so!

    Just to put it out there… you guys are losing a lot of business with these subscription only releases. There’s a couple albums I and plenty of friends of mine would purchase but we’re not interested in joining a club and paying a premium for releases we’re not interested in. I know several folks who already purchased WEO from that other label because of this.
