With their insane party rocker 'Egyptian Shumba', laden with wild shrieks and minor key garage groove, The Tammy's were not just another '60s girl group!

When the teenage Owens sisters were thrown out of a posh restaurant in 1962 for singing along to the jukebox, they vowed that one day they'd have a record ON that jukebox. So they teamed up with a girlfriend and the trio performed as The Tammys at school dances and around the Pittsburgh area.

With its raucous, demented shrieks and screams over an incessant, primitive beat, 'Egyptian Shumba' may never have made it onto that jukebox, but with our reissue 45 it can now annoy grown ups forever more!
