Les Claypool, The Monophonics Join Vinyl

Vinyl celebrated its new remix album Fogshack Music Volume 2 the night before Thanksgiving at San Francisco’s the Independent. The Rondo Brothers, who appear on the new release, opened the night before The Monophonics took the stage. The group offered a high-energy show that included a cover of the theme from S.W.A.T.. Beginning with a version of The Nite-Liters’ “Afro-Strut,” the members of Vinyl filtered onto the stage until the entire band had emerged. The Monophonics horn section remained for covers of Dr. Lonnie Smith’s “Layin’ in the Cut” and Kool & the Gang’s “Give it up,” and the entire band later returned for a take on Fela Kuti’s “Gentleman.”

In addition, Les Claypool, another guest on the band’s new release, took the stage for Roy Ayers’ “Aragon” and The Rondo Bros. and Marcus Scott appeared on a cover of WAR & Eric Burdon’s “Spill the Wine,” among others. Later in the night, Scott returned for a 45-minute medley of James Brown songs. The night came to a close shorty after 1 AM with the members of both Vinyl and The Monophonics running through Fela Kuti’s “Expensive Shit.”
