Mr Degiorgio takes your favourite musical heroes and puts their discography to the acid test. Here’s part two of Kirk’s p-funk special.

Watch out, nerds! Kirk Degiorgio boards the mothership with a two-hour extravaganza of good, clean p-funk. Emerging in the mid-1970s as a synth-heavy, spaced-out version of funk, George Clinton & Parliament, Bootsy Collins and Bernie Worrell distilled the very best of James Brown’s raw energy, hippie aesthetics and new age tendencies. As usual, Kirk knows best – this is his journey through the p-funk universe.
