The Spinning Wig Hats



When I first heard this song on a flexi 7" that came free with a 1986 issue of The BOB Magazine, I thought The Spinning Wig Hats were a real band. I had no idea this was actually The Long Ryders in disguise due to contractual issues. I also had no idea this was a Flamin' Groovies cover. Anyway, it's really nice. Long ride the Spinning Wig Hats!

A version of this song is included on the sadly out of print "Looking for Lewis and Clark: The Long Ryders Anthology".

Not as charming as a flexi-disc, I know.

I'm sure that version sounds better. I wish I had picked up the anthology while it was in print.

Me, too. I paid $40 for it on half.com.
