tear the roof off the sucker: facts i didn’t know

was perusing a MOJO special issue on the coolest album covers ever when i learned, at long last, the difference between parliament and funkadelic. Parliament = horns. Funkadelic = guitars. Am sure I could have figured it out myself had I paid enough attention and listened closely. I’ve always been partial to the horns. I went to the web to learn more and well, ended up more confused. But a really cool site did teach me that the George Clinton named his initial band, The Parliaments, after the cigarettes.
