The Funky Worm

Formed 1988. Disbanded 1989.


The Funky Worm was a British dance music studio project, assembled by a record producer, Mark Brydon. The group took its name from the hit Ohio Players song, "Funky Worm".

The group also contained saxophonist Sim Lister. Their track "Hustle! (To the Music...)" went to #1 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1988. Original band founders DJs Parrot and Ping Pong (Carl Munson), were joined by the singer (now actress) Julie Stewart and were signed by WEA, before reaching #13 in the UK Singles Chart with "Hustle! (To the Music)...". Two less successful tracks, "The Spell! (Get Down With The Genie)" (1988) and "U + Me = Love" (1989) followed.

"The Spell! (Get Down With The Genie)" appears in the Only Fools and Horses episode "Yuppy Love".

In 1995, Brydon formed another successful duo, Moloko.
