This Song: Brownout

Greg Gonzalez, bass player for Austin’s premiere Latin funk outfit Brownout describes how Anthrax’s version of “Bring the Noise” introduced him to Public Enemy, which in turn introduced him to the music of James Brown and ignited a lifelong love affair with funk music.

Brownout just released an album of Public Enemy interpretations called “Fear of a Brown Planet.”
