  1. Thanks, Larry.

    My older sister’s rekkid stack revealed this one to me in the early 80s.
    I used to play it on a punk show on a local 10-watt station.
    I only wish the “Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey” was left-right alternating stereo panned.

    I love that sort of cheap gimmick.

    Gotta get away and back2work.

    No ‘direct’ evidence that I know of, but I do know that Joey Ramone was old enought o have seen a number of acts during the mid-60’s, and as a teen in the outer boroughs of NYC must have been aware of the Blues Magoos.
    There are certainly similarities in the vocal delivery of Peppy Castro and Joey.
