*I’m not putting up the video as it’ll be traceable back to this blog and the Stones don’t take no prisoners with regards copyright.
When The Rolling Stones met Arthur Baker. (and The Latin Rascals)
Back in 1984 and from the album “Undercover” this was a bit of a stones anomaly. Funk in the vein of “Rapture” with Mick Jagger going on about serial killers and mass murderers. The spoken word part pertains to Issei Sagawa, the Japanese cannibal.
Only released in America this is a superb 12″ for fans of the extended mix, overdubs and plenty of Jagger vocal drops. That Wyman bassline is superb and there are plenty of horns and funk. The Lord-Alge brothers helped with the engineering. If you thought the 12″ Dance Version was experimental try the dub it has a lovely extra synth bassline and some more ranting and scatting by Mick, definitely drop-able now.
