Colin Newman - B

SURREAL JOY!  This inspired slice of lunacy from Newman’s A-Z, originally aired on Saturday morning kids TV show in the late 80s.  Before that, it was part of an art show which started in the Museum of Contemporary  Art in Chicago.  Sonically, it reminded me of a discarded jack-in-the-box who comes to life at night to run amok in the city while everyone else is sleeping.   Sonically, you can’t help but freak, dancing until you can’t and  daydream a breath during the song’s only vocals, which have a Snoopy-esque vibe to them.  Hilarious.
