The year was 1987 & Funkytown had reached number 6 on the billboard charts in the USA.
In 2015 Pseudo Echo returns to California to record this one off performance.
Pseudo Echo will be doing it live at the world famous VIPER ROOM on Sunset Strip in Los Angles February 7 2015. The band will record this live album for Digital Release in 2015, and will be touring the album across Australia in 2015.
Pseudo Echo pioneered the 1980s electro sound in Australia and quickly established themselves as one of the most successful and influential bands in the country.
With smash hits like “Listening” and “A Beat for You” from their debut gold album “Autumnal Park” followed by the platinum selling “Love An Adventure” album which featured the hits “Don’t Go”, “Living in a Dream” and the title track “Love an Adventure” the band was set to make its mark on the international stage.
Brian Canham (singer/songwriter/guitarist) then came up with the masterstroke to record a killer version of the song “Funky Town”. At just 24 years of age Brian produced a worldwide smash hit which saw them top the Australian charts for 12 weeks, soar to the USA and UK Top 10 as well as dozens of other countries. Pseudo Echo’s Funky Town came to be the unofficial anthem of the 1980s; big hair, bigger hooks and totally unforgettable. It still packs out dance floors 25 years later.
Pseudo Echo’s music continues to influence and resonate today with remixes and samples of their songs by renowned DJs such Smash/n/Grab, Sly, Quench and Mr. Quick
