Chic, Chic****: Okay, all this punk and new wave I've been listening to is being put into a category I call WATER music. I'm placing funk, disco, and eventually rap into that group as well. Listen to this and then listen to some of those early Talking Heads albums from the same era. They are quite similar. And so what if there's a keyboard and dancing and an infectious funk beat. Isn't that what most of new wave is. Chic's first album is excellent. 3/25/16

Niles Rogers: Niles might have the funkiest right hand on Earth. His playing has been around since the disco days of the '70s. His group Chic defined an era of dance grooves, and his producing, writing and arranging skills offered him the opportunity to play on recordings for David Bowie, Sister Sledge, Diana Ross and countless others.
