  • ´ŽèThe Most Funkadelic Group You've Never Heard Of... Unreleased Funk & Soul from Indianapolis, Indiana's Three-Part Harmony Masters (As Heard on Cold Heat Vol. 1)

Fans of the exquisite, often never-before-released funk championed by Now Again Records are no stranger to Amnesty. Based in Indianapolis in the early 1970s, the group released only two obscure 45s in their recording career. Birthed from the same scene as the Ebony Rhythm Band, Amnesty had a political edge similar to LA Carnival and the hardest brass section since The Kashmere Stage Band.

In 1973 Amnesty recorded five hard, vocal funk numbers alongside some ballads and a handful of demos based around nothing more than guitar accompaniment. Only two songs were ever released; AmnestyŠ—Ès biting, difficult-to-categorize prog/rock/soul/funk stretched far beyond IndianpolisŠ—Ès bounds and the band didnŠ—Èt have a label to take them to the next level. Finally made available thirty three years after they were recorded, these songs are funk arranged with dangerous complexity and performed with precision Š—– arguably the most unique funk to originate from Naptown, and some of the best music of its kind.
