Home / Biography / Blowfly



Blowfly was the X-rated alter ego of Clarence Reid, a songwriter/maker who had a substantial amount of achievement under his own name within the ’70s, composing and producing hits for Gwen MacRae, KC & sunlight Music group, Betty Wright, among others even though on the personnel in the preeminent Florida disco label from the period, TK Information. It’s as Blowfly that Reid is most beneficial remembered using circles, though. The Redd Foxx from the Southern spirit circuit, Blowfly specific in filthy parodies of current spirit and pop strikes; his over two dozen albums, the vast majority of them documented reside in the studio room with the atmosphere of the liquor-fueled all-night party, are an amusing combination of filth and wit that’s neither as well disgusting to become funny nor as well refined to become dirty. Created in Vienna, Georgia, on ROMANTIC DAYS CELEBRATION, 1939, Reid got his nickname in the first ’60s when his grandmother captured the adolescent performing filthy lyrics to a favorite strike and proclaimed that her grandchild was “nastier when compared to a blowfly.” Reid shifted to the greater dirty-word-friendly climes of Miami within the middle-’60s and installed with maker and label owner Henry Rock. Under his personal name, Reid released many solid albums of right R&B, and got several graph singles, you start with 1969’s TOP spirit hit “No one NEVERTHELESS, YOU Babe,” for Stone’s Alston and TK imprints. Reid hardly ever dropped his knack for filthying up Best 40 strikes, though, and over time of executing his parodies for close friends and co-workers, Reid resurrected his adolescent nickname and proceeded to go within the studio room after hours with some studio room musician buddies in 1970 and documented Blowfly’s debut record, The Weird Globe of Blowfly. Needless to say, Stone’s brands couldn’t contact the results, therefore Reid pressed the record by himself Weird Globe imprint, casing it within a bizarre homemade-looking sleeve offering Reid sitting on a garbage can within a comically hideous monster cover up, a set of homemade wings, a blue sweater with “BF” published onto it in yellowish and a set of tighty-whiteys and leg socks, keeping a rubber chicken breast in one hands and clawing at two large-Afro’ed nude ladies kneeling before him. A strange world indeed. Distributed on a single semi-underground circuit that exchanged in Rudy Ray Moore’s Dolemite albums along with other social oddities, the Blowfly information were massively well-known. Though it was an open up secret right from the start that Blowfly was Clarence Reid, Reid constantly appeared in a few sort of intricate and/or strange outfit for the record sleeves. His reticence to become publicly defined as Blowfly stemmed not merely from his spiritual upbringing — despite his filthy mouth area, Reid was a devout Christian who forswore liquor and smoking cigarettes and had worked well like a minister — but through the legal prosecution that Reid’s latter-day buddies 2 Live Team heard bout the hard method. Stores have been prosecuted to carry Blowfly albums in a few areas, and Reid was sued from the then-president of ASCAP, Stanley Adams, after Blowfly parodied Adams’ jazz regular “Just what a Difference each day Makes” as “Just what a Difference a Place Makes.” Reid released Blowfly information under a number of label titles with the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, collaborating with like-minded people like 2 Live Team and also Flea through the Red Popular Chili Peppers. Blowfly was plenty of of a social icon that he actually documented his own vacation single within the middle-’70s. Needless to say, the songs had been known as “Jingle Fuckin’ Bells” and “Queer for the brand new Yr,” but that is Blowfly we’re discussing here, not really Bing Crosby. Blowfly also starred within the low-budget documentary The Twisted Globe of Blowfly in 1991, and many of his albums had been reissued on Compact disc with the ’90s, capped by THE VERY BEST of Blowfly: Analthology in 1996. Clarence Reid/Blowfly passed away of liver cancer tumor in a South Florida hospice in January 2016; he was 76 yrs . old.
