As originators of the rockin' jam trance under the feet, The Stick Men created and demonstrated a gut-wrenching psycho-funk sound with timing, personality, charm, and humor. This presentation of funk domination was pre-Chili Peppers, before P-Funk was considered cool with white audiences, when anything with a dominating bottom-heavy-vibe was boo-hooed as "disco."
The Stick Men ruled Philadelphia by releasing an LP in 1982 "This is the Master Brew" and an EP in 1983 "Get on Board The Stick Men." They performed at a variety of venues on supporting tours for such bands as the Gang of Four, Was (Not) Was, the Slits, Lords of the New Church, Oingo Boingo, the Psychedelic Furs, Bush Tetras, the Pop Group, Nina Hagan, Wall of Voodoo, and Pig Bag, to name a few. The Stick Men magnetized and maintained a loyal fan base and were glorified by both live audiences and the press.
The Stick Men are a phenomenon of a band that remains incomparable to this day.
