Higher Law

I was listening to WYCE the other day and this sweet song came on; it turned out to be Higher Law by Victor Wooten.

And it had all the hallmarks of a late 80s/early 90s Tackhead [wikipedia] song, say, Strange Things-era. The vocal style, the guitar, the drums, even the lyrics — they all sounded heavily Tackheadish. (Maybe they and Tackhead share a common source I’m not familiar with…) I checked it out and one member of Tackhead, drummer Keith LeBlanc, is credited with vocals on that album and that track specifically, but I did not find the hand of Adrian Sherwood anywhere in it, which surprised me.

Maybe “Victa” digs Tackhead, or maybe they both dig the same people.

  1. Victor is the bassist for Bela Fleck and the Flecktones as well. No Tackhead connection that I know of (I have a hard time hearing Tackhead with a banjo.) Of course, Victor’s brother is “Future Man” so you never can tell: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Wooten

  2. Wait. I thought “Higher Law” was that Steve Winwood song.

    bring me the higher law


    No, of course I’m kidding. Sorry.
