Who Loves Cameo ? Oow !

Lately I have been listening to Cameo's 'Strange' non-stop, I cant get over the incredible bass line and funk. Cameo were an incredible funk band from the 1970's and 80's, most famous for another gem, Word Up.

The origin of cameo lay in the Julliard School of music, of all place, where student Larry Blackmon brought together 13 members of the New York City Players

By the time Cameo hit the heights, however,in the mid-80's, they were stripped down to a five-an unit and became dance-floor superstars ("Ooow!)

Their last album was released in 2000, Sexy Sweet Thing. They have also played with hip-hop band Outkast
