Mtume: Hammersmith Odeon, London

Chris Roberts, Sounds, 9 February 1985

MTUME LOVE us all. I know 'cos they said so. They also give their audience pairs of knickers, simulate sex while their hands are covered in luminous paint and, as a centrepiece, bring on a fake James Brown, who performs abominably. Funnily enough, I doubt if there will be many better megafunk shows this year. Mtume tore the roof off the sucker.

Total word count of piece: 219
