Murkredi's current selection is:
Why Did You Do It?
by Stretch
Oddity. This came up on shuffle last night, and I thought I'd share it with some amusing story how I thought it was Sly and The Family Stone ...

... then I did some research, and found that the song was actually written to Mick Fleetwood. Apparently, two of the guys (Elmer Gantry) and Kirby Gregory (ex Curved Air) had been invited to join Fleetwood Mac. They went out to the USA to start a tour, and Mick Fleetwood didn't turn up. They played a couple of gigs, and then Fleetwood threatened to sue them for stealing his band's name. Apparently the legal ramifications of this went on for years, and they formed Stretch and wrote this song about it. Takes on a whole new meaning.

(Even so ... this video is a riot.The lead singer looks like Jimmy Saville. The badly miming drummer is Paul Whitehouse in a fright wig. Lead guitarist, Jim Leas from Slade and the bass player is Frank Zappa.)
1975 - United Kingdom
