At the end of the 80's a local group was playing around OC that blended punk and funk in a groovy, booty-shaking way. The following bio is from lead singer Kevin Murray's site:
We were a 3-piece soul/funk/punk outfit. A mélange of Funkadelic, Bad Brains, Fishbone and the Minutemen. If you will. We played around with all of the local bands of the time: fIREHOSE, the Vandals, No Doubt, Sublime, The Shrinky Dinx (later renamed Sugar Ray), the Weirdos, The Dickies and the legendary El Grupo Sexo. You can catch all the sorted details of the break up the next time you watch any episode of Behind the Music.
I haven't been able to find these songs anywhere on the web, including Twisto's MySpace site and Facebook page.
