5 years on from Painter Man (The Creation), Shel Talmy revisits a similar theme along with I’m An Artist sharing comparable simplistic but to the point chord changes. The outcome is somewhat like a updated melodic Freakbeat outing which is as catchy as hell. The diminished chord under the I’m An Artist refrain is a neat touch and the whole track drives along nicely. The B side Flag is also worth listen as it’s an uptempo rocker with a semi Born To Be Wild riff, but overlaid with harmony vocals and some underlying fuzz.
There’s next to nowt to be found on Porky, they were presumably British, but it looks like this single was only released in the US.
