Lineup

Parliament-Funkadelic musical director Walter “Junie” Morrison’s 1984 techno funk extravaganza Evacuate Your Seats was cut for hip, influential New York indie ZE Records. The album was written and recorded entirely by the musician himself, who was assisted only by an engineer in each studio where he made it. Without exception, Junie on record sounds like he’s having a ball, even when he’s singing about deeply serious societal matters, but on Evacuate Your Seats, he’s positively frisky. He seems energized by new possibilities in the combination of programming and sampling with live instrumentation, and he doesn’t curtail his inclination for animated vocals. The results are consequently full of life.

Evacuate Your Seats has been cited as an influence on the burgeoning Detroit Techno scene. Never previously issued on CD anywhere in the world, Evacuate Your Seats has been remastered from the original masters and expanded with 35 minutes of essential bonus remixes.
