Insect Funk, the new album by Elmore Judd, is released by Honest Jon’s in September 2007 - fourteen tracks of weird soul made in Tufnell Park, north London. Who is Elmore Judd? Listening to Insect Funk should give you a pretty good idea. The first thing you’ll notice is that he’s got an amazing record collection. Insect Funk references an array of artists and styles; from between-the-sheets soul and P-funk to art-school disco and rock avant-gardism, UK hip hop and African roots music, horror soundtracks and jazz. You’ll also notice that Elmore Judd has a vivid imagination; his world is populated by pirates, rats, Snakefinger, dead men and Tron. He lives in London. And he obviously knows how to have a good time - Insect Funk is an ecstatic, danceable, menacing record. He’s probably the man at the party having more fun than anyone else and he’s definitely going home with your date. Sound too good to be true? It is good, and it’s almost true.
