So this track comes out of nowhere in 1986. A decent updated psychedelic garage rock take on Norman Greenbaum's 1970 classic. What throws everyone for a loop, besides the obvious 'Doors like' imagery on the back cover, is the out-f'in-rageous hair that the lead singer has. The video shows it in all it's foot and a half glory! Needless to say, the track became a staple in the underground nightclub circuit for several months. I personally took to the floor whenever I heard those opening notes!
I played this 12 inch to death back when I was DJing a popular Milwaukee 80's Retro night (1990-2008). This was before CD-R's and the availability of CD DJ equipment. YES, believe it or not, I DJ'ed with original slabs of 'vinyl' that often yielded the uncomfortable 'skip' or needle jump!
