New Glenn Hughes Album 'First Underground Nuclear Kitchen Gets Rave Reviews (if you like F.U.N.K.)
Glenn Hughes, of course is a vocalist and bassist, formerly of Trapeze, Deep Purple (Mk III and IV) and Black Sabbath (album 7th Star, 1986).
First Underground Nuclear Kitchen is his 12th solo album, released a few months ago and is certainly the funkiest album he has ever put out.
The album includes Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, incredibly, it hit the UK indie charts at No. 24
Here's some excerpts from reviews with links
This album is most probably his funkiest one since 'Play Me Out', there is still some rock in here but Hughes has really tapped into his own personal funk and soul vibe. It really comes through the music how much Hughes is enjoying himself and yes those who hanker after the Voice Of Rock will be disappointed but this is the sound of an artist at his peak and doing what he loves Get Ready to Rock
...in the case of First Underground Nuclear Kitchen that is most definitely a case of top drawer FUNK rock with some heavenly bass playing and divine vocals. Hard Rock House
As you may have guessed it, it’s hard hittin funkadelia all the way … with the occasional bluesier moment, like "satellite",”Imperfection” or “Where there’s a will”. There’s no doubting here about the conviction or the performance, it’s just a matter of taste. If you’re musical horizons expand beyond, hard rock, this album might seduce you with it’s lounge/funk/blues modes. If not avoid it like F.U.C.& ! Metal Invader
The result is a brilliant balance of the diverse influences that have always been present in Glenn’s music, but with an incredible and very addictive mood that helps creating a feeling of joy and true enjoyment all over the album Nightwatchers House of Rock
