Cosmic Slop is the fifth studio album by Funkadelic, released in 1973 on Westbound Records.

Cosmic Slop is the first Funkadelic album to feature artwork and liner notes by Pedro Bell, who assumed responsibility for the band’s gate-fold album covers and liner notes until the band’s collapse after 1981’s The Electric Spanking of War Babies. Bell’s liner notes to Cosmic Slop include small illustrations next to each song’s name, summarizing the song in a picture. - Wiki

“With a much more stripped-down version of the band, if the credits are to be believed (five regular members total, not counting any vocalists), Funkadelic continued its way through life with Cosmic Slop. A slightly more scattershot album than the group's other early efforts, with generally short tracks (only two break the five-minute barrier) and some go-nowhere ballads, Cosmic Slop still has plenty to like about it, not least because of the monstrous title track. A bitter, heartbreaking portrait of a family on the edge, made all the more haunting and sad by the sweet vocal work -- imagine an even more mournful "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" -- the chorus is a killer, with the devil invited to the dance while the band collectively fires up the funk.” - AllMusic

 

About Funkadelic:

Funkadelic is an American band that was most prominent during the 1970s. The band and its sister act Parliament, both led by George Clinton, pioneered the funk music culture of that decade.

When referring to “P.Funk” as a style, it is a shorthand term for the distinctive style of funk music that George Clinton and the Parliament-Funkadelic collective performed. - Wiki / Discogs
