Review: Bad Mutha Goose and the Brothers Grimm – Be Somebody

Be Somebody maxi-single/EP by Bad Mutha Goose and the Brothers Grimm. was released on cassette and LP in 1991 on Alpha International Records. Bad Mutha Goose was a rock/funk band out of Austin, Texas in the 80s and 90s. Bad Mutha Goose will kind of remind you Sam Salter in some way. Production was done by Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo and Tim Kerr. Tim Kerr and Yoggie Mosgrove were the brains and bread behind Bad Mutha Goose. Most of the messages on this EP are quotes that a motivational speaker would say.

Be Somebody was the song that everybody played at house parties in Austin back in the 80s. Be Somebody is the lead single and title song of this funky vernacular EP. We all know that everyone in life has ups and downs. The only way to keep your head above water is to set your mind right. So try a little harder. When times are tough, you gotta get tougher. Set your mind right if you have envision a dream you want to achieve. You gotta keep pushin’ along in life.

Be Somebody is an educational taste of motivational philosophy. Be Somebody is about being someone and just being yourself. Just let yourself be original and don’t be fake with the rest of the people in modern society. To set your mind right. Just be original. Just let you be you. Be Somebody! Get out there and do something! It’s better than doing nothing at all really. This is the jam! Most of the messages in this song are quotes that a motivational speaker would say.

Pride was a song about having pride in who you are and what you are. Such as pride in being black, being gay, tall, fat, obese, obtuse, or whatever. It didn’t matter who you were. You don’t ever hear this type of funk in music anymore in this day and time. Reach down deep search for pride within yourself. Search deep into your soul. You got to be proud of life and not full of hatred.

Sometimes the truth is just meaningless chatter as told and described by Bad Mutha Goose on Time To Get. We’ve come a long way but we still have a long way to go. There is a minority of us of that have mental power to not be spineless zombies. It’s just us and laziness that holding us and each other back.

Bad Mutha Goose describes to us on the last song called 100% (%100) that life is only what you make of it. When things aren’t going good for aren’t going your way, they could be worse. Give it your all by giving 100%. Life is up to you. Only you can make those actions and decisions. When your life is through, people will remember you by all the things you have done.

I rate this EP 5/5*****!!
