Ask a musician when they first heard The Meters.
I was in a drummer’s basement in Boston. He put on “Cissy Strut”. I started asking odd questions.
“What’s this music called? Is this the only song? Are other people allowed to try to be like these people?”
He lended some perspective to calm me down; “The Meters are pretty much it.”
I had made funky-aliyah. Summer 2005.
