P-Nut Butter Funk
Malvern based DJ collective P-Nut Butter Funk promised to 'deliver the whole funk and nothing but the funk', but are sadly no longer together.
Malvern based DJ collective P-Nut Butter Funk performed a selection of original uncut funk standards and rarities.
The group, who formed in 2000, discovered a shared passion for funk, fine wines and bourbon whilst working at a Malvern off-license!
Their tunes cover the whole funk spectrum, from raw funk, jazz-funk, and p-funk through to African funk, Jamaican funk and political funk.
Ad Crunchy, better known as DJ Ad Lib, provided warm up sets for live acts such as Dubmerge and Spiralize throughout the 90s.
Ad has also been responsible for numerous events including 'Ministry of Frogs' & 'DJ Skunk's Sweat Lodge'.
Ad Lib had been the driving force behind the successful Trance & Techno night 'Elusiv' (which used to be held at the Jailhouse nightclub in Hereford), as well as performing in Poland.
Rob Smooth, AKA DJ Ape-11, has been promoting and DJing for over 5 years.
Specialising in Critical Beats, Electronica, Funk and Jazz, Rob is best known for his eclectic sets with Mr Hej's Herbal Cough Mixture at the Hypnopuppy and Phoenix nights.
Under the guise of Astral Sounds, Rob provided a selection of 1970's spiritual jazz or kozmigroov for the Ozric Tentacles when they visited Malvern in March 2002.
Rob was also warm up DJ for Worcester based Free-Jazz outfit Pyramid Quartet.
They finished writing music together in 2004/5.
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session, every week from 7pm on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
