Named after the Eddie Bo 45 of the same name, HOOK & SLING is London's Funk Weekender dedicated to bringing you the finest Funk bands from the past and present and DJ's playing the hardest Funk 45's in existence.
Rhythm Machine hail from Omaha, Nebraska and they released their debut Funk 45 'Freakish Love' in 1975. The following year saw the band release their debut self-titled album on the Indianapolis record label Lulu. Their second single 'Put a Smile On Time' came out in 1976. Egon's Now-Again record label re-issued the band's entire back catalgoue in 2012.
The DJ line up for this year's Hook & Sling Funk Weekender features the first set from Brooklyn's Mr. Fine Wine (a.k.a. Matt Weingarden)in the UK since 2001. His 'Downtown Soulville' Radio show on WFMU has been introducing the world to some of the rarest records for decades now. Breakestra's Music Man Miles jets in from Los Angeles again to play his superlative selection, Funk Night Records' Frank Raines is coming in again from Detroit as is Guernsey's DJ Oneofakind. 'Sister Funk' compiler, Ian Wright, plays at the Hook & Sling for the first time. The 'Deep Funk' club co-founder Snowboy plays on both nights as does his South London Soul Train DJ partner Perry Louis.
