Hi! We’re the Spats and we’re f*ckin’ nuts!
Listen/Download – The Spats – Bony Moronie
This has to be super quick since it’s being done days in advance due to an unexpectedly overbooked schedule that involved a few days traveling when I oughta shoulda been taking care of other life stuff (like the blogs and such).
That said, we last talked about the Spats back in February with their garage stomper ‘She Done Moved’.
Not long after that post I managed to score a copy of their earlier ABC album ‘Cookin’ With the Spats’ which featured the stuff that first got them on TV, like ‘Gator Tails and Monkey Ribs’.
It’s a cool album in a somewhat clean-cut take on the frat rock sound, but there was one marked exception, that being the tune I bring you today, their fast-paced and more importantly unhinged take on Larry Williams’ ‘Boney Moronie’.
I’ve heard countless covers of this tune (I even have another one in storage for future posting) but the Spats really take the cake, if in fact the cake in question was made with crushed pep pills and rocket fuel in the batter.
It’s just under two minutes of crazygonuts, which is about all I have time for.
I hope you dig it and I’ll see you all next week.
