"Endicott"-Kid Creole and The Coconuts (1985)

This week has been filled with nostalgia for me as for the past four days, I have barely listened to anything that resembles a 2008/2009 synth crackle or hip-hop beat. It's almost cleansing in a way...Something that is just pure clean fun is Kid Creole and The Coconuts's 1985 track, "Endicott" from their album, In Praise Of Older Women and Other Crimes. As you might know, I do get a kick out of Kid and Co.'s Caribbean-island-funk escapades, as they are they are just unscrupulous fun. Aside from the rousing horns and the punchy rhythm, the song has some great catchy word play, as we are introduced to "Endicott", who is the epitome of a great man...who "pays his bills on time", who is "not the cheating kind" and who "makes love hard and long". Whoever this "Endicott" is, I need to meet him...that's the kind of guy a sista like me needs. Ha!

Kid and his Coconuts (the trio of identical looking gals) performing during a 1985 tour...the whole performance is like a luau...This is making me want a sailor's cap real bad...TAMBOURINES!
