Obligatory Eighties Music Post

Here's a big thank you for the shout-out from If the Thunder Don't Get Ya (the Blizzard Will) and kudos for posting the video for Fuzzbox' version of Spirit in the Sky.

I would never knock Doctor and the Medics, but I have to say that my favorite song of theirs is Lucky Lord Jim.

Now, I feel I would be remiss if I didn't post a video, but there are no videos for Lucky Lord Jim so here's the 1986 single Rocking with Rita by the Vindaloo Summer Special:

The Vindaloo Summer Special was a super(?)group composed of Vindaloo Records artists Fuzzbox, the Nightingales, and comic Ted Chippington. The single, which I haven't heard in years, is good dumb fun- a piece of fluff lost in the navel of kitsch history.

As an aside, I am currently listing to the Saturday/Sunday overnight programming on WFDU, as usual. Don't be churlish, give them a listen!

I get a nice surf music vibe out of that. I see they're calling it "Cramps style".

And who am I to argue?

Within the first few seconds I was about to complain that they were disturbingly English.

How surprising that they are from England.
