Hey, Baby!

Shake a tail feather!

Fun cover from this interesting R&B/soul band. From their wiki page: "Geno Washington was a US airman stationed in East Anglia who became well known for his impromptu performances in London nightclubs. In 1965, guitarist Pete Gage needed a singer to front his new band and replace the previous singer Errol Dixon, and asked Washington to join. When Washington was discharged from the US Airforce, he became the band's frontman."

I figured that maybe it's a Bond three-wheeler they're driving in this pic from the back cover, but no. It's actually featured nearly in full on the cover of their next album...

The car is the Opus HRF (Hot Rod Ford). Good info here and here.

Anyway, though it's not from this album (their second), I'd like to add a song from their first; a fun, unique cover of "Que Sera, Sera":

Not 5, Not Neat...

...but still Guys. ;)

You can tell they're serious because of the double exclamation mark!! 

As is often the case, I probably didn't include the back cover because it's just a small track listing followed by nothing but ads for the record label, thus not worth it.

The title is a reference to the legendary SCTV skit/group 5 Neat Guys. 

I love how they're supposed to be squeaky clean, but...not quite. :p

Space babe

Love the look of these Living Stereo albums, and Esquivel in particular had some really good, iconic ones. Space was the place!

This album must've been an RCA giveaway, judging by that sticker. Ooo, is this a rare copy? :p

Hey, remember Astronaut Jones? ;)

Ol' Gun Nose

Hadn't heard of this movie before. Sounds like fun, actually. :)

Interesting how even though this is a spy spoof, and he obviously did a lot of genres, I only thought of Riz Ortolani as the one who did the soundtrack for Cannibal Holocaust. :p (yeah, I'm good at remembering things I have no interest in)

Disco Sideboob

Pretty standard discotheque duds here, at least at some places, I'm sure. That was probably considered a lot of clothing at some of those dens of decadence. :p

Much more standard duddery here. I think I'll look up that "Space Warrior" song, not to be confused with ye olde Space Power Warrior:

I still have mine, bought sometime during winter 1999, I think. Probably made to take advantage of the Phantom Menace hype.

Ok, I found "Space Warrior":

 Quite good, actually! I appreciate the use of real instruments. Heh. Also, this whole thing is a Giorgio Moroder project, which is cool! :)

Talk to the hands!

What could possibly cause him to try and silence these megacuties? The title translates to "Music to Fall in Love", but I guess he doesn't want it.

Love the primitive editing here. You can still see white outlining around them all over the place, plus they missed the part beside the left megacutie's arm. Their teeth and eyes have also been whitened. Also, boy does that guy look familiar! Probably just has that type of face.
