Subject: Cool 1960-ish song Thu Jul 28, 2016 8:24 pm
I was watching drag racing clips.... Muscle cars - trucks - speedway races - And one clip had this song for the first minute... What struck me was the garage sound.... like they just learned their instruments....etc... Then the pot smoked voice and carefreeness.... Of course, there's a live clip of this song... They are before 100,000 at some festival.... But it does remind me of a cool high school band... with a peppering of punk...
I love that song but sadly the rest of their catalog doesn't measure up to it IMO. I bought that album back in the day because the local alternative station played "Bohemian Like You" and I loved the song. But the rest of the album just sounds like typical indy crap to me. Then I bought their follow-up "Welcome To The Monkey House" in hopes of it living up to that song. Nope.

Hit and miss band for sure but they had plenty more than one song.
This one is great

I always liked this song...had a sixties vibe..... Like it could of been on a 45....Sonny and Cher.... I was at a party when I heard this... the young people were amazed that I never heard it before... then they played it again...whistled, sang with it, danced... The song, thus, has never left me - lol
