Friday Chillin’ Vinyl (Part 2)

Up next on our chillin’ turntable playlist is another album we picked up yesterday at Our Favorite Record Shop, ‘Rat In the Kitchen‘  by UB40.

Before you start to lapse into seizures, this is not the album that has that uber-fucking annoying ‘Red Red Wine‘  on it, otherwise it never  would have made it home.

Believe me.

In the U.K., UB40 were major stars, and this album was their sixth Top Ten hit, featuring the singles ‘Sing Your Own Song‘, ‘All I Want to Do‘, and ‘Rat in Mi Kitchen‘.  In the U.S. though, the group remained a developing act with a modest following, but they were only able to score a hit by covering a previous hit like ‘I Got You, Babe‘ and, yes, that other song whose name we shall not mention.  This album didn’t really do anything to change any of that, although it was, as usual, a tuneful collection of reggae.

I figure it serves as another example of tasteful webejammin tunes for HRH  to expand and develop her interest and knowledge in reggae music.

Also, the album cover is Simply the Tits.

About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
