George Clinton needs your help

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Funk legend George Clinton and his Parliament-Funkadelic family recording studio are in a bit of trouble these days and they need some money to restore and preserve their original recordings and for urgent repairs and upgrades to their studio. They need $50,000 and they took to fund raising site Indiegogo to do it.
Countless acts of copyright fraud, theft, and intellectual injustice have and still continue to attempt to derail the funk from fulfilling its mission. As George fights daily for the funk, this campaign acts as an opportunity for us to unite and return it to its rightful owners.

As George continues to battle for the rights to his own songs we are looking to expand our self-sufficient nature, as to not need the powers that be: record labels, lawyers, and publishers. By expanding our own studio and creating a better environment for the housing of George's classic material past and present, we are creating an opportunity for this and future generations of funkateers to be able to continue to spread the message that "Everything Is On The One!" and we are "One Nation Under A Groove". As we put a stop to corrupt figures who continue to claim rights and ownership of the funk from the shadows, we are creating an environment that enables the funk to live on forever.
