Deep Fried 5 / Press

“Forgive us, dear readers, for this most transgressive of transgressions: Somehow we missed the delicious nugget of battered funk known as the Deep Fried 5. Usually we can be counted on to be abreast of the latest and greatest in our hometown funk sound — it doesn't take much — but somehow this six-piece managed to fly under our radar. But no more! These dudes have moved to the top of the chart in our heart with a sound finds the more commercial aspects of late-’70s soul — you know, when it was bumping uglies with the beast that was about to become disco. Deep Fried 5 celebrate the release of their debut album Saturday Night Funk, Sunday Morning Soul with the always awesome Biscuits N Gravy and the notorious DJ Doctor Wicklestein. — Sean L. Maloney”
