Classic forty seven – Pause for One Hot Minute


LIKE previous Classic Collection contribution Bad by Michael Jackson, The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ One Hot Minute is a great album overlooked because of the company it keeps.
Sandwiched between Blood Sugar Sex Magick and Californication, the LP, the group’s only outing without John Frusciante as guitarist is better than just being an enigmatic sidenote on their illustrious back catalogue.
As well as the distinctive heavy metal leanings of former Janes Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro – best exemplified on One Big Mob – there’s plenty more of note.
It’s an album containing some of Flea’s most furious basslines like Coffee Shop, moments of emotion like Kurt Cobain tribute Tearjerker and comedy as in Pea, raw funk like the awesome Falling Into Grace and Walkabout, and big hits like Aeroplane.
So spare a few seconds for One Hot Minute – I guarantee it’s spicier than you may remember.
