Dumpstaphunk Covers Buddy Miles’ Classic Funk Anthem “United Nations Stomp”: Listen
New Orleans’ preeminent funk/rock powerhouse Dumpstaphunk fires on all cylinders with the release of a cover of Buddy Miles’ soaring funkadelic anthem “United Nations Stomp.” The song approaches super jam territory with blues phenom Marcus King and acclaimed guitarist Waddy Wachtel (Keith Richards, Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks) adding some jaw-dropping guitar licks.
Produced by The Beastie Boys’ longtime sound engineer Mario Caldato Jr., the tune will appear on the band’s forthcoming album Where Do We Go From Here, set for release on April 23 via Mascot Label Group/The Funk Garage. Dumpstaphunk’s version of “United Nations Stomp” follows last year’s release of two songs from the album — the title track and “Justice 2020.” The album is the band’s first full-length work since 2013’s Dirty Word.
Released in 1973, “United Nations Stomp” appeared on Buddy Miles’ album Booger Bear and spoke to the world’s urgent need to come together, a message that still resonates today. In a statement Dumpstaphunk bassist Tony Hall reflected on the song’s impact. “First, I’m a big fan of Buddy Miles,” said Hall. “I like the groove, and you can dance to the rhythm of a funky beat! With a strong message, it talks about peace, love and harmony – something we all need today.”
The debut of “United Nations Stomp” comes with a lyric video that can be viewed below.
