[Press-N-Play®] 'Drummer Man' by The Brady Kids is the secret weapon that break beat DJs need


 

You know, I don't remember the tunes on the The Brady Kids cartoon going H.A.M. like this. I hardly recall there being a Brady-related 'toon at all, actually. But there was one, and the unbelievably funky "Drummer Man," sung by the very familiar sounding TV show cast members, is the last track on the b-side of the 1972 vinyl record (and 8-track tape) release, The Kids from the Brady Bunch.

And if I were a deejay, "Drummer Man" is a song that would be in my arsenal as a secret weapon–for b-boy battles, especially. The intro and the break on this are pretty insane, and the guitarist is workin' that wah-wah pedal to d-e-a-t-h. It's also short and sweet, too, clocking in at just over two minutes. That fact alone calls for double copies, right? 

Yup, that's why I should've been born a deejay, or why I'll prolly be one in my next life. Dancers would be rocked and shocked by all the classic and obscure jams in my (presently non-existent) record crate. So in the meantime, until I'm reincarnated as 'DJ Thulsa Doom,' I'll have to be sure that my deejay pals give "Drummer Man" by The Brady Kids a listen. Non-turntablist types can download if desired by doing so below.
