The Beat: Go-Go's Fusion of Funk and Hip-Hop
by Kip Lornell & Charles C. Stephenson, Jr.
Chronicles the development and popularity of go-go music since its evolution in the early 1970s, when Chuck Brown left a Latin band to form the seminal go-go band, Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers. It examines go-go's immediate roots, and focuses on many of the key figures and institutions in go-go culture, including Trouble Funk, E.U. (Experience Unlimited), Junkyard Band, Little Benny and the Masters, and Go Go Mickey.
