James Brown works Laugardalshöllin

Published August 20, 2004

From the Godfather of punk to the Godfather of funk. And, of course, soul. To my generation, James Brown first appeared coming out of the floor, singing Living in America in front of a surprised Ivan Drago in Rocky 4. Not long after, “Free James Brown” became a popular graffiti. But Brown has led many lives and has been a major influence on R&B (the original variety), soul, funk and even hip hip, having cut the breakthrough single Unity with Afrika Bambaataa. They´ve been saying it for decades, but this really may be the last chance to see him live, at least in this country, and shouldn´t be missed. They might always put him away again. All together now: “Say it out loud, I´m black and I´m proud.”
The concert will be on the 28th of august in Laugardalshöll, starting at 19:00.
