Long before Daft Punk donned their clandestine helmets, and when The Stig was probably still crapping in his pants (will we ever know the blokes identity?) The Earons were at work blasting out this hypnotically dance-inducing tune.
A band whose gimmick proved more intriguing than most of their music, the Earons were a funk variation on Sun Ra‘s cosmic mythology approach, with a little bit of Anthony Braxton‘s mathematical obsession added. They claimed to come from “Earon Earth,” and all the members were known only by numbers. They did have one outstanding single, the hard-hitting and musically arresting “Land of Hunger” in 1984. It deserved a better fate in R&B circles than its ultimate stalling out at number 36. Still, this was the only one of three Earons singles that even made it beyond number 50, and they soon disappeared, probably returning to “Earon Earth.”
