CUB –I’m Going Home
CUB –I’m Going Home/You Have Come My Way –Imperial 5C 006-24 624 (1972 NL)
Most likely the best single released by CUB (Continental Uptight Band) and definitely the weirdest, I’m Going Home is an unusual quirky vehicle for an anti-war themed number. Starting with strange vocals up there with The Monkey Song (Douglas), the song then thumps and thuds along its unusual path. It has a bit of John Kongos about it in a dirgey pseudo Glam sorta way and tries to be commercial with its chant-like chorus but remains fully grounded in a morass of sheer bizarreness.
