Warren Zevon – Leave My Monkey Alone (US 12″)

Bring back popularity!!!

Peter Gabriel brought out “Shock The Monkey” back in 1982 and me, trying to make a tenuous link, has brought you this Warren Zevon track from 1987. Here he collaborated with Parliament/Funkadelic (George Clinton) to create this politically charged song. From the album “Sentimental Hygiene” this is about Kenya and it’s struggle to be free from British reign. Think electronics and samples with wry, satirical lyrics with almost Levin-like bass precision in fact a guest appearance by Flea of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Mix team, The Latin Rascals are involved, creating some long, involved remixes.

  1. I had no idea that there was a Warren Zevon 12″ remix but if they were going to do it, this is the one. I’ll have to add that to my want list since I recently completed my collection of Zevon albums.
