The Monster Jerk
Finally a little Monster Soul. With this track I have no doubt it would have been a perfect bedrock for a little Sam Cooke style soul. I was almost amazed how solid this band is on this track. It's not quite as good as some of the guys Cooke had backing him, but its got some surprisingly solid session work here. Part of Don Hinson and the Rigormorticians.
I'm a big fan of the horns and they really make this song shout. Just a little twist on one of the traditional 60s dances, Monster Jerk features a very Peter Lorre impression talking about the now passe bird and ditching it in favor of The Jerk.
