The B-52’s – Rock Lobster (US 7″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 4th March 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1978

A. Front

“Rock Lobster” is a song written by Fred Schneider and Ricky Wilson, two members of The B-52’s. It was produced in two versions, one by DB Records released in 1978, and a longer version, which was part of the band’s 1979 self-titled debut album, released by Warner Bros. The song became one of their signature tunes and it helped launch the band’s success.

“Rock Lobster” was the band’s first single to appear on Billboard Hot 100, where it reached No. 56. A major hit in Canada, the single went all the way to No. 1 in the RPM national singles chart. Its follow-up was “Private Idaho,” in October 1980, which reached No. 74 in the US. It was well received by critics and was placed at No. 147 on Rolling Stone’s list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

Fred Schneider & The Shake Society – Monster (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 9th October 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“Monster” is a 1984 US only promotion single released by Schneider frontman of the rock band The B-52’s. The track was taken from Schneider’s first solo album Fred Schneider and the Shake Society. Kate Pierson, also from The B-52’s, performs backing vocals on this track.

“Monster” is one of my favourite tracks, as there is an innuendo implied, although Fred states in the disclaimer that this wacky space-age song with tag team guitars that it’s about a dinosaur walking around in his polka dot PJ’s and not what some dirty-minded people might think. Think about it: “There’s a monster in my pants and it does a nasty dance. When it moves in and out. Everybody starts to shout. Monster aah!”

The music video was actually banned from MTV in 1983. The video stars Keith Harring and Chris and Tina from the talking heads & tom tom club and the late Drag performer, playwright, and actor, artist Ethyl Eichelberger.
