It's funny, because I can never remember the name of this band. I had to search on google to find it. They were a short-lived band, but I still love their sound.

If I am not mistaken, Kid Creole and the Coconut's came out of this group or were inspired by them.

"Sunshine"

Why did you change the title from Sunshower to Sunshine?
That song was on the B-side of C'est Si Bon. Its a tight track.

Sorry, I meant to type that, but put "Sunshine" instead. It is definitely "Sunshower", used to sing it all the time. Thanks.

I didn't realize you could get that first album on CD??

I can't even find an original copy of it on vinyl.

I remember I had to order that cd online because I couldn't find it in any
of the stores in my areas. I think I had ordered it from tower records online.

I LOVE KID CREOLE/AUGUST DARNELL! biggrin biggrin

He is too talented and so underrated. His work with Dr. Buzzard and his own band Kid Creole and the Coconuts was just classic. Their sound is so unique and captivating, which is why I LOVE IT!!! Some great songs came out of their little army including "Deputy of Love," Que Pasa/Me No Popi," "There but for the Grace of God Go I," and "Cowboys and Gangsters" in addition to all the great Kid Creole and the Cocounuts tracks - "Stool Pigeon," "I'm A Wonderful Thing," "Endicott," "The Lifeboat Party," "The Sex of It," which Prince wrote and so many others. My Kid Creole/August Darnell and Related play list gets steady play on my iPod.

Here is a recently released collection of some of the songs he wrote for different artists.

I really liked Chez Chez Le Femme and if There But For The Grace Of God is theres well that is my ALWAYS favorite. Back in NY on WKTU with PACO they played it all the time when I was a kid. Kid Creole and Coati Mundi are way cool. I saw them in NYC I think they played at SOB's when Sex Of It was out. They put on a good show. Nice to know that they are still touring. I'll check them out.

You MADE MY DAY, with that flashback. I do believe he ended up going to jail, due to tax evasion.
