Holy Touch by Foxy Shazam
I am glad this group hails from Cincinnati because they rock hard. Their tagline is “White Music for Black People”. And really they made just that. Growing up music was more segregated then than it is now but even the most Afrocentric black music collections there would be Bruce Springsteen or Steely Dan stuck in there. And of course Queen. Queen got so much airplay on black radio I remember being shocked to see that they were white. Foxy Shazam lives up to their moniker, especially with the previous video from their latest CD which has the chorus “That’s the biggest black ass I’ve ever seen and I like it, I like it!”
You just have to see it
Since their eponymous first album the group has been compared to Queen (and of course Eric Nally to Freddie Mercury) but they are more than that. The horns remind me of funk groups that same from the SW OH area in the 70s and 80s and the base is just funky and hard.
If you are a Foxy Shazam fan how would you pin point them?
If you aren’t a Foxy Shazam fan then you don’t know what you are missing. You need to become a congregant in Foxy Shazam’s church. Listen to their current CD “ The Church of Rock n Roll” and you will become a believer.
