Funky Friday – Frying Tonight

Posted in 60's, Funky Friday, keyboard kings, northern soul on May 30, 2008 by planetmondo

God only knows why Mick Weaver chose to rebrand himself as the clunkily named ‘Wynder K Frog’- not that you’ll give a sniff about his pseudonym, after a tucking into one of Wynder’s red hot funky fry ups.

WKF’s CV includes three spectacularly swishy solo albums -‘Sunshine Superfrog‘(1967) ‘Into the Fire‘(1970) and ‘Out Of The Frying Pan‘(1968) which for my earth money is the chef’s special from his fistful of sizzlers – as well as sessions for Ronnie Lane, Steve Marriot and an appearance on Bentley Rhythm Ace’s FSUK 3.

Recommend reading is Larry at Funky 16 Corners piece on Mick/Wynder

So why not have a bite of WKF’s B3 boogaloo below – but, be warned, it’s almost impossible to play any of these hammond flavoured hotties just once..

Wynder K Frog – Willie And The Hand Jive

Wynder K Frog – Green Door

Wynder K Frog – High Heel Sneakers

‘Bad Eye’ also on the ‘Frying Pan’ album was featured here as part of a recent for mix for The Hook And Sling website

Any Wynder K Tune makes a marvellous DIY soundtrack to this Vic and Bob clip. Turn the Youtube volume down, fire up a Wynder and off you go..
