Friday To-Do: Punkinhead

Back in the day.

PUNKINHEAD
9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

I haven't seen Punkinhead since 1992 or 1993, but its “New South Soul” album has remained in my CD rotation stack for the better part of 15 years. Never got my paws on the follow-up, “America Dreaming,” but while simultaneously recording at Barry Poynter's in early 1993, I learned that drummer Chuck P utilized only a kick, snare, high-hat and ride cymbal to lay down his drum tracks. Ah yes, less can be more. Simply put, Punkinhead owned Little Rock and Fayetteville for a long stretch, and fans of All That is Funky will want to secure tickets and arrive early for this reunion, as seating at Sticky's can often be a crying bitch to secure. No opening act has been announced as of press deadline. For a preview, dig some of Punkinhead's jams at myspace.com/punkinheadlive. That should be enough to whet the taste buds.
