This album was released on cassette, CD, and LP in 1991 on Alpha International Records. Most of the messages on this album are quotes that a motivational speaker would say. The album is filled with uplifting themes with positivity inside of them with a funky instrument ensemble. As with most Bad Mutha Goose And The Brothers Grimm EPs, singles, and albums, this album was overlooked by the masses including the general public.
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. Tim Kerr’s work is seen and can be heard all over this album.
Be Somebody was the song that everybody played at house parties in Austin back in the 80s and 90s. Be Somebody is an educational taste of motivational philosophy. Most of the messages in this song are quotes that a motivational speaker would say. Be Somebody is about being someone and just being yourself. You don’t ever hear this type of funk in music anymore in this day and time.
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 pushing along in life. 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. 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. We’ve come a long way but we still have a long way to go.
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. 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. Some people let their pride slide unfortunately.
You don’t ever hear this type of funk in music anymore in this day and time. Bad Mutha Goose represented the last wave of funk. The music genres of dance and funk are incorporated into one righteous Bad Mutha Goose song.
Bad Mutha Goose gets educational on the song Party Platform. Education brings truth to the minds. Those who are dissatisfied with the contents of daily reality go to school to get an education. Those who went to school in order to obtain a sophisticated education use history to help themselves through their future. Bad Mutha Goose tells us to use your history to help you through your future. Don’t get caught up in the cycle of being uneducated and uninformed.
Sometimes the truth is just meaningless chatter as told and described by Bad Mutha Goose. 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. It’s just us holding us back. We’ve come a long way but we still have a long way to go.
The band comes at us with a “question everything” mentality similar to Alex Jones, Jello Biafra, or Jesse Ventura. Bad Mutha Goose tells us to question everything as Alex Jones or Jello Biafra would. Bad Mutha Goose tells us to question everything that the system tells us. This is the bands attempt towards questioning the government.
Bad Mutha Goose tells us to use your history to help you through your future. When Bad Mutha Goose tells us, “Use your history to help you through your future.”, they are referencing the quote from famous social philosopher George Santayana, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”. We are currently dealing with this today regarding the George Santayana quote.
Bad Mutha Goose waists no time being consistent in order to be relevant. Bad Mutha Goose waists no time pushing consistency into the concept of relevancy. Party Platform is just as relevant today as it was at the time of this album’s release.
Sometimes the truth is just meaningless chatter as told and described by Bad Mutha Goose on Time To Get. 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. It’s just us holding us back. We’ve come a long way but we still have a long way to go.
Bad Mutha Goose describes to us on the 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.

The concept of music can make things much clearer than your words could ever say. The Bad Mutha Goose band hopes to entertain your soul. This is the jam!
Jump The Funk is the classic 80s funk jam that made the Bad Mutha Goose band famous in the music scene and in music of Austin otherwise. Jump The Funk had house parties in Austin rockin’ out back in the day. If you were educated and informed about the social scene and party scene here in Austin, Texas, then you’d know about this song. This is one of those party on the boat dock at the top of the boat jams. This jam will make you want to get up and dance!
