I’m A Man
Published on 28 October 2011. The Bordellos get down and dirty with this Yardbirds classic, originally written by Bo Diddley – only an excerpt here – sorry!
This is taken from the double 7″ from Fruits de Mer Records – the 2012 Fruits de Mer/Regal Crabomophone Annual….the best unreleased tracks of 2011 that we needed an excuse to commit to vinyl – and what better excuse than Christmas?
Two lovely slabs of colour vinyl
Here’s a list of the tracks:
I’m A Man’ by The Bordellos (originally by Bo Diddley)
‘Destruction’ by Langor (originally the theme to the sixties film, ‘Just For The Hell Of It’)
‘Thick As A Brick’, by Jay Tausig (originally by Jethro Tull)
‘In The Court of Conscience’, by Beau
’25 German Boy Scouts’, by Permanent Clear Light
‘All Stars Have Gone To Sleep’, by Vibravoid

Thanks to Purrsia who adds the old black and white films to Bordellos tracks on YouTube. Nobody has a clue who he or she is.
