godzilla '56

You know the old story...boy meets girl, girl gets caught on cctv holding up bank with a shotgun and becomes overnight celebrity, boy loses girl.

That was the premise of this track recorded around 1988 by my band at the time, Godzilla '56. We were a punk inspired mash up of Ramones, Sigue Sigue Sputnik and the Ultra Magnetic MC's - under the influence of MDMA - and recorded this with my future bellboy records collaborator Chris Cowie at his studio in Aberdeen.

This track only turned up after Chris pinged me to say he had found a box of dat tapes at the back of his shed the other week.

I particularly like the 'channeling' of Scotty Moore for the guitar solo and the absurdly inept wah wah drop out before the 'arch' key shift at about 2:39.
Not to mention the awesome Godzillabass riff throughout.
