I’m growing a moustache to raise money for the Movember Foundation. So this month I will be honouring some of the best moustaches in music. You can donate to my mo here: https://mobro.co/harry-mo
Moustaches were so. hip. in the 80s. They were so ubiquitous that today I have not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but 5 artists to present to you. It is almost the end of the month after all!
First up, funk anthem. Sex symbols. Paragon of facial hair. Saying what you were all thinking. It’s the late, great Errol Brown as Hot Chocolate.
Next, a ‘get yo’self to the dancefloor’ number from The Brothers Johnson, Stomp!
Smoothness from Keni Burke. Just look at the fella. Old-school pimp.
Though this guy remains in relative obscurity, you’ll know this funky number from it’s samples. Ronnie Hudson and his ‘tash coming at ya.
Finally, maybe the biggest of them all, Wild Cherry, with Play That Funky Music. You know the one.
