A bit of a legend is old August Darnell, founder of the band, writer and producer he has kept his tongue firmly in his cheek for over 4 decades. The Coconuts are fun, the Madness of Latino Pop. A single off the album “Doppelganger” from 1983.
This has added drum machine and bongoes over the jazzy chords on the remix by Michael H Brauer and Stephen Street (before he went on to work with The Smiths)
B-sides include the hilarious “Gina Gina” an album track from 1981 and another Brauer remix of previous single, “There’s Something Wrong In Paradise.”
Fun Fun Fun!
