The Futures

1. Self described funk thrash from Japan. 2. One of the finest Philadelphia soul groups. The group's got harmony chops that are plenty strong -- with an ability to hit both a sweet soul sound and a deeper righteous groove that was being used by some of the funkier groups at the time. The Futures made a poor career move when Gamble Records ended up signing with Buddah Records, thus missing a golden opportunity to join Philadelphia International Records. Without the major label support that Philadelphia had to offer bands like the O'Jays, Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes, and the Stylistics, the band failed to reap the benefits of their productions. 3. A pop-punk band from the UK. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
