While Trump's anti-PC tweets and behavior have grabbed headlines and driven discussion around the water cooler, least we forget that political correctness in the San Francisco's Bay Area can often be just as vexing. Local music production company Sound Behavior Troupe take a humorous jab at the PC Capital's unique culture where individuals often self-select themselves into PC pre-defined identity categories.
"East Bay Chubby Luv" harkens back to the social satire of Frank Zappa's 'Valley Girl', against an energetic background of traditional rhythm and blues. Written and composed by guitarist Paul Kelley, the track features such accomplished musicians as Jimmy Hobson on drums (Hall and Oates, Celine Dion, Billy Preston,...) and bassist Steve Evans (Elvin Bishop, Petula Clark, Roy Rogers with The Doors' Ray Manzarek, Pat Travers).
"We create new music that is innovative and marketable, while being rebelliously challenging, that speaks more to liberation than cloning," explained Paul Kelley. "Take the energy of early American roots rock and roll, add the complexity of fusion/classical/odd timings, but maintain soul and rhythm. That's the Sound Behavior Troupe sound."
