Moving Men –The King of Crazy Town

Moving Men –The King of Crazy Town/Girl I Wanna Hold Your Hand –Decca 86049 (1975 France)

The Moving Men were an off-shoot of Gallic space age baldies –Les Rockets. The song was written and produced by Claude Mainguy. It was later re-recorded with French lyrics and released by Les Rockets as Les Fils Du Ciel.

The King of Crazy of Crazy Town is a fine sturdy rocker with some great effect laden vocals and robust riffage. The B side is a more traditional Rock ‘n’ Roller, which gains from the switch to a more stomping rhythm ¾ of the way through.

Thank you very much Unkle Pop.
(You know, coming here is like visiting a really cool unkle and browsing through his music collection.)

What do you think the chances are that Mr. Matlock heard this before writing the opening riff to Anarchy in the UK?

(I agree - not much, but it could happen)
