The song Phuck U Symphony first appeared on Millie Jackson's double album Live & Uncensored, her 1979 paean to decadence, which became the must-have party album of those altogether decadent times; Jackson's no-holds-barred, out-and-out raunchy concert was originally recorded live at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, and remains a landmark recording to those of us who, like her, also revel in the altogether sacred combination of vulgar and funky. Here she performs the song in her inimitable manner at London's Dominion Theatre, circa 1984.
Today is Millie Jackson's birthday; may the Pop Culture Institute suggest that you do something vulgar and funky in her honour, in the way that we try to ensure every day is like Millie Jackson's birthday around here by doing just that as frequently as possible.
