About Split Decision Band

An obscure R&B group from Des Moines, Iowa, Split Decision Band released one single during their existence. Issued on the local Network label in 1978, "Watchin' Out"/"Dazed" featured hard-driving disco-funk on the A-side (reminiscent of Mass Production) and a slower, sleazed-out groove on the flipside (that owed much to Ohio Players and Parliament). Over the years, the single became increasingly coveted by collectors. In 1998, the A-side was included on the BBE label's first Soul Spectrum compilation and later popped up on lesser-known sets. Separate 7" reissues appeared in 2014 via Athens of the North and Now-Again. On the hunt for previously unreleased Split Decision recordings, the latter label tracked down bandleader Gordon Starr Flipping, who obliged with enough archival material to result in a self-titled full-length released in 2017. ~ Andy Kellman
