The Belle Stars ‎– Slick Trick (12″)

From 1981 and on the legendary Stiff Records label and produced by Langer and Winstanley. I’m not sure at the time if they were marketed as the female equivalent to label mates, Madness. This is less of a novelty record as “The Clapping Song,” “Iko Iko” or “Sign Of The Times.” It’s a funky ska number with half rapped lyrics.

Quality B-side as well; lively with lots more brass and a killer bass.
