The story of the Detroit Grand Pubahs is a story  about fun, funk and forked personalities. Originally founded by Paris The Black Fu and Andy Toth in Detroit back in 1998 today's Pubahs consist of Paris and his alter egos.Paris the Black Fu aka Offbeat Killer, aka Nurse Hearse, aka Percy Slade, aka Plasticene Gene, aka the Schizofrenic Brainchild of Funkno started DJing around the age of 16 inspired by Detroit radio legends The Electrifying Mojo and The Wizard (Jeff Mills). As one half of Heckle & Jeckle (w/ Jon Williams), he played regularly at the Po' Boys parties in Detroit. Paris the Black Fu and Andy Toth (aka Dr. Toefinger) met around 1998 and discovered their mutual liking of electronic LoFi-Funk. They crossed P-Funk, cartoon sexuality with a raw, minimal Techno Booty and as Detroit Grand Pubahs, they released their first single "Mad Circus EP" on Brian Gillespie's labelThrow. Especially the lead track Sandwiches spread like a bushfire and was picked up by Jive Electro who immediately signed the Pubahs for a full length album. A video was shot and Sandwiches made it into the Top 20 of the Billboard Club Charts as well as the UK Dance Charts. In May 2000 the Pubahs performed Sandwiches and some unreleased tracks to a packed crowd at the first-ever Detroit Electronic Music Festival before Jive released their debut album "Funk All Y'all" in early 2001. The album lays out their typical signature sound of minimal lofi funk and trashy electro sounds backed up with hip-smart booty beats. Mostly vocoder pitched Paris' lyrics describe a lunatic world of odd characters and even more odd sexual practices. The album is alsoa playground for Paris' various forked personalities who are taking the lead on tracks like "One Hump Or Two", "Ride", "After School Special" (with Miss Kittin), "Plasticene Gene" or "Dr. Bootygrabber". Jockey Slut called them "the only non-stop erotic techno cabaret worth catching". Most of 2001 the Pubahs toured around the world to promote the debut album with big success.They've also taken their live shows to a new level, with Paris donning multiple costumes and personalities, dropping his pants to reveal nothing but a thong and shaved ass, and encouraging women to join him on stage and hump to the funk-fueled beats. In 2002 the Pubahs were dropped from Jive Electro as they refused to deliver a slick polished commercially exploitable follow-up to Sandwiches. Dr. Toefinger, while running tests on himself is now brain dead due to the Schizofrenic Investigator tampering with the equipment. Paris decided to keep Toefinger in a cryogenic life-support chamber until he figures out away to reverse Toefinger's condition. In 2002 - 2003 the Pubahs worked on some remixes for e.g. Cornershop, Op:l Bastards and Gigolo's Moscatelo, before Poker Flat asked for a remix of Märtini Brös. "Hot" (pfr34). The master tape also included some new Detroit Grand Pubahs tracks which forced us to sign them for a long term relationship. Amongst Märtini Brös., Martin Landsky, Glowing Glisses, Hakan Lidbo and Steve Bug, Detroit Grand Pubhas are the perfect addition to expand the Poker Flat universe. The first single "The Clapper" has been released in November 2003 and proves that the Detroit Grand Pubahs are back with full power. With explicit lyrics and stomping uptempo Electro-Techbeats the track will be a sure shot in every set from House to Techno, from Electro(clash) to Bootybarflavour. With a mighty straight forward remix by JesperDahlbäck "The Clapper" opens up the fest for the 2004 releases.
