Funk from the heart of Paris: Pigalle Connection is an allstar group led by Hammond wizard Guillaume Metenier (Soul Sugar), featuring musical contributions by Shawn Lee, Dr. Lonnie Smith and members of the Mighty Mocambos. Inspired as much by b-girls and b-boys as crimesploitation scores, their debut 45 brings tough and street-savy funk breaks with a magnificient French touch. The title track 'Paris Breakdown' is a percussive tour-de-force with epic breakdance chorus. The flip side's 'Milano Drive' is a slick uptempo car chase soundtrack, 'Pigalle Theme' a sleazy mid-tempo blaxploitation funk with snapping drumbeat.

I'd recommend getting the full set of singles by Mohawkestra. Every track is killer. Paint it black breathes new life into what we all know is one of the Stone's best. Outrageously funky playing, and super, super in the pocket.
I was curious about the name of group. Wondered whether it was from a shared love of Alan Hawkshaw and Sun Ra? Jesse Brown
