Wow, my first posting. I'm the infamous (only to those who listen to KBVR
Corvallis) Jazz Butcher fiend DJ. I play him every week, usually using
Fertilizer as my background music for PSAs. Anyway, I heard this song
last night, "Warm Leatherette" obviously related to "Grey Flannelette,"
although I don't know which came first. The band was the Normals and if
anyone knows about them I'd like to know who ripped who off. JBC's version
is of course wholly better.
partytime-"it's better than a cold bath with Police Chief Daryl Gates"
well, grey flannelette is the spin-off.
bath of bacon has several allusive lyrics:
grey flannelette -> warm leatherette
zombie love -> the zombies
velvets references in gloop jiving/jb theme
probably others. yeah, he has hung his laundry in his lyrics since
the beginning - not so much lately, though. i appreciate *how* he
does it though. its sort of like how kids completely miss the classical
and popular references in the old warner brothers cartoons, yet they still
hold up for all audiences.
