 like i said before, mid to late 'seventy's saw young loveless caught between the sweet soul music and the punk and new wave camp's, one thing that was the same was searching out elitist vinyl releases, either northern soul rareities, white label dub platter's or home brewed, limited edition punk, i was an avid collector of the stiff record label's releases, this one from 1978 is from the lovely jane aire and the belvederes, [the backing band who featured amongst other's jon moss who later went on to become boy george's crush and member of culture club] there was a whole vibe at the time about the american city of akron, the rubber capital of the world, and stiff famously released a 'scratch and sniff' compilation album at the time featuring artists from ohio and smelling, not suprisingly of tyres, don't know about that but, i do know, it's a great record, i haven't played this for twenty year's but, it's.........fucking great!
 i had to check out the clip to see if it really was as funny as i remembered it, it is, scatological slapstick, comedy classic, just plain brilliant......
