Who knew one of Richard Hell's best tunes was a novelty re-write!?!--Bill

Flip side of "The Mummy". I have this record.

And, by the way, did you notice that the songwriter on this was Rod McKuen?

Richard Hell talks about this record in a history of punk that I read (it may be Clinton Heylin's 'From The Velvets To The Voidoids', but I'm not completely sure and the book is all the way over there on the shelf and I'm sure as shit not getting out of bed to look), and acknowledges that it's a direct inspiration.
