Both Bang Tango and the Electric Boys are known for infusing funk with Glam....but which one did it better? Bang Tango's Psycho Cafe was driven by bassist Kyle Kyle's skills, which set him apart from most others in the Glam genre. However, the Electric Boys arrived on the scene from Sweden, and put out an amazingly funky major label debut, Funk-O-Metal Carpet Ride. Both bands deserve credit for thinking outside of the box in a genre that heavily rewarded those who "stuck to the formula" (rocking song, followed by a power balled, followed by another rocker), but if you had to choose which blended the two types of music better, who would you choose?
I know Bang Tango has a very loyal fanbase, and they will probably skewer me for this post, but I have to call it like I see it. Not to take anything away from Bang Tango, as I am a fan, but for me, the Electric Boys did it better.
