The Flying Lizards – Money (US 12″)

At long last the 12″ of this weird novelty hit from July 1979. The Flying Lizards (Dave Cunningham and Deborah Evans-Stickland ) manage to do a bit of KLF and gain notoriety with this Hit. Posh/stoned vocals over a drum machine led backing. Studio trickery, bleeps and squelches and the deadpan vocals in that unexpected bass, dub interlude halfway through the 12″, for something so experimental it did rather well!!

“Summertime Blues” is probably the weirdest, sparsest cover ever. Metronomic drum machine (deliberately screwed about) and even more dub effects. RADICAL!!!!
