Yes, here come The Jellies. They made this single in 1981, self released it and even though it got played by John Peel, no one bought it at all. Well about 30 copies were sold. Most remaining copies went to landfill. Fast forward a few decades and it starts becoming this strange cult thing, thanks to people like Thurston Moore and WFMU. Anyway, it’s back, it’s out with the original mix, a shorter radio edit, and three mixes from Georges Vert (AKA the Advisory Circle), Fred Deakin (of Lemon Jelly) and Tommy Stupid. IF you’ve not heard “Jive Baby On A Saturday Night“, it’s a bit like Tom Tom Club but without all the production. It’s also very hooky.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the repress of the repress, and it has a white label instead of the black label so you can tell the first repress from the second.
