Some slinky sounds from New Orleans for you today, from the utterly magnificent 1976 self-titled album by The Wild Tchoupitoulas (and not, as I believed for many years, The Wild Chipolatas).
The Wild Tchoupitoulas were members of one of the 'tribes' of Mardi Gras 'Indians' who take part in the Mardi Gras Carnival and various other parades, and a lot of the lyrics relate to those traditions. On the album they were backed by The Meters, which explains the funkiness.
