The Clingers –Gonna Have A Good Time

The Clingers –Gonna Have A Good Time/And Now You Know Me –CBS 4047 (1969 French issue)
Q: What do you get when you mix 4 Mormon sisters, Kim Fowley and an Easybeats tune...?
A: A one off foray into 60s Girl Punk Dancerama with a bit of added proto Runaways...
Produced by The Prince of Sleaze with Michael Lloyd (Stories, Smoke etc...) Gonna Have A Good Time is a groovy uptempo organ fueled dancer. Not as wild as the original, The Clingers’ version still kicks a mean butt plus they were damn cute too boot –Check out their TV appearance on YouTube. The Clingers Sisters were a well established MoR /Gospell outfit appearing on many TV shows and this was an atypical release for the sisters. Debra Clinger later became one third of The Rock Flowers.

It certainly is a good version of The Easybeats classic.
