Single of the Day: Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band – Wipeout
It’s boring old Monday, so let’s brighten it up with a bit of brilliant bongo action (not that sort of bongo action, you saucy sods!) from Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band! Huzzah! Etc, etc.
I was reminded of this ‘triffic track after listening to a bootleg copy of a Horse Meat Disco set by Daneille Baldelli, who dropped this little gem in his mix. Essentially a stomping cover of The Surfari’s classic sun & surf staple, ‘Wipeout’, Viner’s version incorporates some sexy sax & swagger, Hammond organ madness and of course, some bongos and b-boy breaks.
It doesn’t have that funny little “Ha, Ha Wipeout” bit at the beginning, which is a shame but its all fun and cocktails.
