Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time For y'all have knocked her up I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe I was not offended For I knew I had to rise above it all Or drown in my own shit. Come on Maggot Brain Go on Maggot Brain.
from the LP MAGGOT BRAIN. from: Peter Mosinskis. other heavy grind on it (check out "Super Stupid"). RHCP guitarist John Frusciante called Funkadelic "heavier than Black. Sabbath" in a Guitar Player magazine interview a few years ago. Intro words: Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time, for y'all.
though the Mothership was well on its way already, Maggot Brain really helped it take off. The instrumental title track is the key reason to listen, specifically for Eddie Hazel's lengthy, mind-melting solo. George Clinton famously told Hazel to play "like your momma had just died," and the resulting evocation of melancholy and sorrow doesn't merely rival Jimi Hendrix's work, but arguably bests a lot of it. Accompanied by another softer guitar figure providing gentle rhythm for the piece, the end result is simply fantastic, an emotional apocalypse of sound.
Maggot Brain" is a song by the band Funkadelic. It appears as the lead track on their 1971 album of the same name. The original recording of the song, over ten minutes long, features little more than a spoken introduction and a much-praised extended guitar solo by Eddie Hazel. Hit It and Quit It. Funkadelic.
