Fat Larry's Band - Zoom (Original Promo) (1982) (HD)
Twas around 1993/ 94 as I recall that this one turned up out of the blue on the Jukebox in the local pub and caused quite a bit of ruckus...
The regulars were all mainly Punks, Rude Boys & Mods (with odd old ageing Hippy dotted here and there) and I found this little gem on the Jukebox one night after the guy had been in to fill it with new (well old) songs, so to my delight as I hadn't heard it for years I bunged a few bob in the jukebox and put it on ten times in a row...
One or two enjoyed it and were happily swaying back and forth (but that could've been the drink I suppose) and tapping their tootsies to it but a few of the older diehard punks got a little bit miffed after the 7th playing a wee bit of barney broke out with the end result being a few well aimed pool cues going right through the jukeboxes speakers... :-o
Still I've always enjoyed this one and aint afraid to say so, so if any ageing punks, rude boys, mods or even hippies come across this one and it aint your cup of tea then please don't go firing pool cues through the speakers and just move on, there's plenty more round ere to listen too and for those like me whom do enjoy this classy wee gem of a track then sit back mellow out and listen to the vintage R&B/ Soul sound of Fat Larry's Band from 1982 with "Zoom"... :-)
Sharpened Up, ReDubbed, ReMastered and removed all traces of pool cues... enjoy... :-)
