Something Smells Funky 'round Here
The album mixes rousing, new originals, reinventions of three Bishop classics and some unexpected, soul-shaking covers. Something Smells Funky Round Here was produced by Bishop and Steve Savage and recorded at Bishops Hog Heaven Studio in Lagunitas, California. Bishop wrote or co-wrote five songs (including two by the entire trio). The potent title tracka tongue-in-cheek State Of The Union address as only Elvin can deliver kicks the album off with Bishop aiming his lyrical truths at those in power. The humorous but piercingly direct lyrics take aim at the current political scene while Bishops deep blues guitar playing drives the point home.
Lookin Good finds Bishop autobiographically gazing in the rearview mirror with sharp, wry lyrics accompanied by Welshs perfect blues piano. Willy Jordan sings lead on four songs, including blistering reinventions of Jackie Wilsons Higher And Higher and Ann Peebles I Cant Stand The Rain. Bob Welsh, whose guitar or piano playing highlight every song, pounds the ivories on his own Bobs Boogie. This album fell together easily, says Bishop. Everything I visualized about the songsfrom Bobs playing to Willys singing, came true. Bob and Willy are great musicians.
