Wicked Witch – Chaos 1978-86 – EM Records

No longer melting into obscurity, the Wicked Witch rises from the 1980′s Washington DC underground. Playing an unholy blend of psycho machine disco fusion funk, this isn’t your fathers guttural “Good God!” James Brown Funk. It’s more of a P-Funk/Rick James/Sun-Ra/Prince low-rent D.I.Y. hybrid. This Wicked Witch of the East is in reality the mild mannered (?) Richard Simms when not donning his very special boots & black leather costume. Rick does all the writing, producing, mixing & instruments himself. The one exception is Vera’s Back – which was recorded as Paradiagm (sic), Ricks group in 1978 – the funkiest, best & longest of the bunch. On EM Records.
