On The Other Hand – Ho-tel Mo-tel Holiday Iiinn

February 7, 2007

I still have the 12″ full 15 minute version of this – and still know ALL the words – it’s an absolute classic and check out the moves too. This is a rare recording at some venue called the Soap Factory in 1978. Enjoy – or skip to the next post if you don’t like it.

OR – have a recap on LISTEN WITH ROCKMOTHER while you are patiently waiting for the
forthcoming podcast on slitswitch.

    Oh yes I remember this one.<br/><br/>I knew a band called ‘The Herbs’ and they nicked this bassline for their song ‘Trumpton Rap’.

    I remember my sister playing this about 1 billion times when it came out.<br/><br/>Something very sweet about boasting about your ‘colour TV’ these days…

    Ister – I think it’s been nicked for loads of things hasn’t it?<br/><br/>Annie – yes – plasma tv with surroundsound wouldn’t sound quite right would it? I can’t believe I still know all the words to the 12" version. I copied them into the back of my English book in a lesson once – tragic.

    Mmmm, what to wear tonight…I know! Black leotard and a gold belt.<br/>With a bip-bop-bibbety-bop and a bip-bop bibetty-boo….
