Not the best vinyl condition (I’ve been lucky recently) and the debut release from the duo that was Haysi Fantayzee (Kate Garner and Jeremy Healey) under the svengali presence of producer Paul Caplin. The legendary Tony Visconti had a hand producing the 7″ version. The 12″ feels like a Malcolm McLaren track with Sique Sique Sputnik vocal effects, short, sweet and crackly.
Displaying a bizarre of mix of styles, it is like 2-Tone meets Soweto. B-side “Okay Big Daddy” is a backward chanted instrumental, voodoo hoodoo!
