I was checking out this early music video of Funkadelic in all their freaky glory performing their classic track "Cosmic Slop" in 1973. This video is quite a scene. You've got George Clinton in whiteface and sporting what looks to be a half-Mohawk while flicking his tongue like some possessed blue-tongued skink; and there's Fuzzy Haskins rocking a ripped-up, dirty-looking jumpsuit, as well as Garry Shider in his signature Diaper-Man getup. The rest of the band are wearing equally freaky attire.
The video was shot on the streets of New York City, and actually it's not bad, considering the time it was made and no doubt the limited funds available to make it. This video was made about eight years before the MTV video explosion in the early 1980s, and the Funk Mob already saw the possibilities of the medium. It's kind of refreshing to see a low-budget, unscripted video like this, as opposed to the expensive, overproduced spectacles made today where it seems like the music is often secondary.
