Bootzilla’s here!
Who is the person you would most like to work with?” For Claude VonStroke, it’s definitely Bootsy Collins – the biggest personality in Parliament Funkadelic and funniest character the funk world has ever seen. We couldnt be any more excited to have Bootsy on dirtybird and this crazy collaboration of styles is the lead single on Claude VonStrokes 2nd album, Bird Brain.”

If you havent heard of Bootsy we couldn’t write it better than Rolling Stone“Bootsy Collins Rubber Band was the most entertaining and longest-running spin-off of George Clintons eternal P-Funk circus, and that’s because Bootsy is a true star, the clown prince of comic, psychedelic, good-times funk if he werent such a genius of the bass, you’d think he was Jimmie Walker in a sequined costume, star-shaped mirrored shades included. His career is like a Horatio Alger story based in Chocolate City: Plucked from teenage obscurity in 1969 to play with James Brown, the former William Collins of Cincinnati brought a slap-happy zest to JB’s sound, then hooked up with Clinton and was reborn in his image, with a little help from LSD.”

It is certain that Claude VonStroke is not nearly as accomplished as Bootsy Collins, but he takes the same tongue-in-cheek approach to his music and thats why this collaboration really works. Both Claude and Bootsy believe you got to get up for the down stroke and theres no way to fake the funk or your nose will grow, Pinocchio!
