Bonzo Squad is nothing short of a bombastic bunch of talented musicians who smoke on their instruments like no one’s business. Their track “F*** Comcast” hits all the right buttons for me. An awesome fusion of jazz, rock, funk and a hint of Weather Report meets Return To Forever. They pack a mighty rhythmic punch, with keys and brass providing extra color and texture. It’s not surprising that Bonzo Squad make a big noise.
I like to think of Bonzo Squad as updating the fusion tradition for the 21st century, with the emphasis on the collective endeavors, rather than individual grandstanding. All of the group’s virtues are embodied in “F*** Comcast”, with its mighty bass grooves, punchy horns and exotic keyboard sounds allied to the fiery drums.
The arrangement on “F*** Comcast” provides a seemingly unstoppable momentum. This richly layered and detailed performance retains the listeners’ attention while maintaining a high level of excitement. This song will flare up and grab your ear in the time it takes a YouTube ticker to count down from 5 seconds.
“F*** Comcast” is a song Andrew Lawrence wrote a year or two ago, inspired by real life events.

Special thanks to Comcast. Without their terrible customer service, this song wouldn’t exist.
