Pimples and Braces / The Hunt
RIC GARY / JOE HOUSTON
Availability: In stock
Goofy and completely adorable knockabout riff on the Champs 'Tequila'. Pour a liberal dose of Mexican mescal into an ice-cold glass of Yankee doodle diddly dandy and your cocktail’s just made for a good time at your all-in all-out Spring Break frat party! It’s not just 'Pimples and Braces', we also get such wonderful nonsense as 'Bongos and Burgers' and 'Tacos and T-Shirts'. Insane! You just cannot not love this record, it’ll wig you out!
Now 'Pimples and Braces' is actually the work of legendary musical satirist Spike Jones and his City Slickers. However, the track mysteriously resurfaced a decade later on the back of a dog rare garage 45 by unknown band the Fallen Angels, and dubiously credited to 'Ric Gary with Ron Wray Light Show' - a suitably offbeat sounding team even if they were wrongly claiming authorship of the song?!
As usual with this series we give you two bangs for your buck and so on the back here is famed honking tenorist Joe Houston's own take on 'Tequila' - a greasy, grinding R&B flavoured romp if ever there was one – make way for more TT a-shakin’!
