War almost was not the name slapped across gold records such as The World is a Ghetto and Why Can’t We Be Friends? When the name was first suggested, as founding member Lonnie Jordan recalls, the band thought it might sound too radical. But then they reconsidered, Jordan says, and decided to “wage war with melody, rhythm, and harmony as our weapons and the songs as our ammunition. We spoke out against racism, hunger, gangs, and crime and fused rock, jazz, Latin, and R&B.”
Concerts today might find the band still bopping to the infectious bass line and instantly recognizable horn riff of “Low Rider,” one of pop music’s most romantic love songs to hydraulic suspension. “Spill the Wine,” which catapulted the band to national attention, streams trippy imagery and grooving flute to transport listeners beyond the “hall of the mountain kings,” where pleasure reigns and no couch is too nice for jumping.
Bassist Trae Pierce conducts the groove for Sugarfoot’s Ohio Players, the bill’s second seminal ’70s funk act. The nine-piece band shows off its three horns in the funky, strut-worthy opening of “Fire.” “Love Rollercoaster,” the group’s mega hit, still shuttles listeners along love’s topsy-turvy trip, which has coursed through many a roller rink, dance floor, and barn raising.
