Kid Creole & The Coconuts – I’m A Wonderful Thing (12″)

Another track from 1982 and the utterly fabulous August Darnell and his NYC band, the coconuts. I liked the way they transcended the novelty, “Spiv” image to give us memorable Pop tunes.

From the album “Wise Guy” / “Tropical Gangsters” this is the full, unedited version. Love the clarinet riff and the cool, jazz vibe.

“Table Manners” is even more funky, opening out for the dancefloor but still having that Coconut sound.
