Funkdoobiest: Which Doobie U B? (Epic/All formats)

Stephen Dalton, New Musical Express, 24 July 1993

CARTOONS ALL over the sleeve. Distorted snapshots and stupid-fresh pseudonyms for the band: Tribal Funkster, Son Doobie and Tomahawk Funk. Goofball LA trio Funkdoobiest seem bent on portraying themselves as The Flintstones of rap, building their lopsided jams on a bedrock of organic funk and slack-jawed wordplay which loves the sound of its own booming voice: shouting loud, talking bollocks.

Total word count of piece: 308
