The Jonzun Crew – Pack Jam (Look Out For The OVC) (1982)

Jonzun Crew was an electro group that carried its spin on Parliament-Funkadelic’s loopy sci-fi themes of Afro-futurism throughout the 1980s and early 1990s for a handful of albums, which included singles such as “Pack Jam (Look Out for the OVC),” “Space is the Place,” “Space Cowboy,” and “We are the Jonzun Crew.” Florida-born brothers Michael, Soni, and Larry Johnson (better known as Maurice Starr) formed the Jonzun Crew in Boston in 1981, with Gordy Worthy and Steve Thorpe filling out the lineup for different stretches of the group’s existence. Starr and Michael would gain further notoriety for helping to bring New Edition and New Kids on the Block to the world; Michael (who continued using Jonzun as his last name) also went solo for a brief period on A&M, in addition to working on several other artists’ releases.

In 1986, Michael Jonzun left the group. “Pack Jam (Look out for the OVC)” was often played in the background while the rundown of top hits in Germany were counted on the German-language Top Hits show Formel Eins during the 1980s.

“Pack Jam (Look Out for the OVC)” was remixed by John “Jellybean” Benitez.
