Bob Dylan and Dave Stewart get Funkadelic

Key Parliament-Funkadelic member and co-founder of Bootsy Collin’s Rubber Band, Gary ‘Mudbone’ Cooper is back on tour in support of his debut solo album “Fresh Mud”

Uncut described the debut release as “a rollicking affair that mashes up blues with funk, hip hop and gospel” and it also includes contributions from some diverse musicians.

Bob Dylan adds his blues piano playing talents to a track called “Home” and another pianist, Jools Holland also helps out on the album.

Ex-Eurythmic Dave Stewart co-wrote forthcoming funk-gospel single “Freedom’s Coming.” The single is released on November 26 to raise awareness for Nelson Mandela’s “46664” initiative.

Other contributors on the album are original Funkadelic bassist Billy “Bass” Nelson and Jamaican ‘rap queen’ Nadirah X – they will also play live with Mudbone on his UK shows.

Mudbone will strut his funky stuff next month after supporting P!ink on a national arena tour. He will play:

London Metro (December 4)
Birmingham Barfly (6)
Cardiff Barfly (7)
Brighton Pressure Point (8)
Manchester Roadhouse (12)
Glasgow ABC 2 (13)
Nottingham Rock City (14)
