Mike Judge Presents: Tales from the Tour Bus. The first season is Country and the second is Funk. I watch both even though I am not a Country fan. Both were great!

Cool.

I’d heard that the leftover material from Funkadelic’s Electric Spanking of War Babies, which George wanted to release as a double LP, went into Computer Games, but that’s certainly not mentioned here.

Hmmm…I found a source:

A Computer Games song Clinton had cut from Electric Spanking when Warner Bros. refused to release it as a double album, “Atomic Dog,” even became one of the biggest singles of his career.

Perhaps it’s just rumour. The records don’t sound similar.
