About The Brides of Funkenstein
The Brides of Funkenstein was a funk musical group originally composed of singers Dawn Silva and Lynn Mabry. Previously background singers for Sly Stone, Mabry and Silva joined the p-funk collective in 1977. George Clinton named the group (based on the scenario and characters from the Parliament album The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein) and produced their first album, Funk Or Walk, for Atlantic Records in 1978. Their debut album skyrocketed to success, selling over three hundred thousand copies within the first week as well as winning a record world award for best new female group.
