Go Go Gorilla Friday

Congratulations, you made it all the way through the week!

Welcome to Friday, January 27th, 2006.

Ok y'all, this first one is sure to get you up and moving. Turn it up and dig the awesome vibes of Mambo Inn! This is from a hip little album called Doctored For Super Stereo by Peter Appleyard. And, according to the 1957 liner notes, "one of the most sought-after artist on the modern scene". You can be sure I'm looking for more.

Our second number for this fine friday is by Marisa, a one name wonder off of Ultra Chicks Vol.1 — Filles in the Garage! Just one of 72 tunes from a 3 volume compilation of obscure 60's French Pop 45s. (Bummer the cover art is not as cool as the musical offerings.) Check out Christine, dedicated to my Ultra Chick, Chrissy.

And finally, The Shandells oohh-aahh-some Gorilla! Not really sure why, but this song makes me super thirsty...

And yeah, that's me in the Gorilla suit jamming to Hawaii 5-0 at the Grande re-Opening of Joe Bananas in Hong Kong.

Cheers and Go Go Gorilla!
