Claude VonStroke Beware of the Bird
- Words: Tony Ware
- Label: dirtybird
Detroit native and San Francisco resident Barclay "Claude VonStroke" Crenshaw is eagle-eyed when it comes to tech-funk detail. Releasing singles on German labels Get Physical and Neuton-but mostly the dirtybird imprint that he runs with Justin Martin-CVS is internationally recognized for his percussive, swinging basslines and cheeky, swarthy details sure to please both Green Velvet and Alex Smoke. This CD collects the original dirty bird's output, bolstered with his remixes. The only caveat: as the majority of tracks were previously released as singles, the rubber ball only bounces so far from the core.
