Trouble Funk Express



I received an e-mail from Per, tipping me off about a song Henry Rollins had played on his LA radio show yesterday.

The song was "Trouble Funk Express" as performed by Trouble Funk - one of the bigger acts in the funk subgenre go-go (with Rare Essence, The Junk Yard Band) and it is basically a funk cover of Kraftwerk's "Trans-Europe Express".

While "researching" this, I read somewhere that Rare Essence (the wickedest band alive) also used to play a version of the song, "RE Express", but I haven't been able to find it online or on any records. Any leads?
