The Alabama Porch Monkeys

From Rocklopedia Fakebandica

From director Spike Lee's racially charged mess of a movie, Bamboozled (2000). Of course, that's redundant- all of Spike Lee's movies are racially charged. This is the deliberately offensively named house band of the controversial hit Continental Network System TV show, Mantan: The New Millennium Minstrel Show. They're costumed in old style striped prison uniforms with ball and chain. And yes, the set they play on is a porch in Alabama.

Played by real hip-hop band, The Roots: Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson, James "Kamal" Gray, Tariq Trotter, Leonard "Hub" Hubbard, and Kyle "Scratch" Jones.
