“Atomic Dog” by George Clinton – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
George Clinton brought funk into the light in the early 70s without a warning. His mastermind created a sound that gave his bands Parliament and Funkadelic road that gave a new path to a new style of rock, funk and soul. Clinton’s 1982 album “Computer Games” is another electronic dazed project which features the big club hit, “Atomic Dog” – an imaginative dance track outlining an obvious video game with dogs doing what they do best – chasing cats for sport. This number has the form where keyboards play against the groove sliding from side to side. A real funk escapade with Clinton’s unique ensemble playing out man’s best friend’s best hour.
I have taken “Atomic Dog” and paired it with an unusual horror film from 1976 titled “Dogs” – which was shot in San Diego at Southwestern College. The film plays with the premise that the college science department using radiation is unleashed to canines and is spreading. Dogs begin packing together in the dark night and crave human flesh. A B-flick which is more of a candidate for the Mystery Science Theater 3000. It stars David McCallum and Linda Gray.
The film was directed by Burt Brinckerhoff
