On their first record in six years, the trio of elderly women comprising the Foxxxy Cougars continue to embarrass themselves. On their 1991 debut Young Meat, their shtick was cute; sexy women in their 50s singing about young men they desired and their numerous sexual conquests. But after 25 years and 13 albums the novelty has worn off.
The only thing listenable here is “James Jones,” a funky, danceable ode to an unattainable teen neighbor known for mowing the lawn with his shirt off. “On the Prowl,” burns slow with raspy, incoherent vocals, while “Still Young Down There” made me simultaneously want to vomit and cut my ears off to stop the diarrhea-like sounds coming from the speakers.
With any luck Go Funk Yourself will be the last Foxxxy Cougars recording and they’ll be forcibly moved to an assisted living facility where they’ll live out the rest of their days.
