This weekend, our Fall fundraisers are in full swing, and it's hard to get a quiet moment in which to put up a blog post. Yeah, it's time to fall back on the "post a video" gambit. I'm going to post a somewhat obscure novelty song by a short-lived New Wave band called Electric Guitars. Wolfman Tap is a bizarre cautionary tale about a tap-dancing werewolf. I remember it getting a fair bit of airplay on the storied left-of-the-dial radio station WLIR, but I haven't heard it in years:
The opening percussion is reminiscent of Ant Music by Adam and the Ants. I'd never heard anything else by the band before, but their early stuff is pretty interesting. Another interesting tidbit, Toni Basil requested a song from the band with some interesting results. It's kind of a shame that they are best known, at least in the 'States, for a novelty track, even one as funny as a bit about a tap-dancing werewolf.
