THIRD MAN RECORDS
the a-side ‘people save the world’ is a propulsive, socially-conscious, exercise in primitive funk rock.
the b-side shares its title with the band's name & is a breezy, easy-going instrumental, weirdly at odds with its name. while rockfire funk express never released any music while they were officially a band, in 1973 they recorded a two-song single at united sound systems, a legendary detroit studio that recorded everyone from john coltrane, john lee hooker, the mc5 & countless others. third man is finally unleashing these songs, giving the hackney brothers david, dannis & bobby their due.
