Turbonegro "Ass Cobra"
Another old record. The more I think about it, the more I realise that Turbonegro are the band Zodiac Mindwarp could have been (er, could have fronted), if only he had had more than one song and liked singing songs about handsome sailors. I also like the song 'I Got Erection', with its increasingly outlandish list of things that give the singer a hard-on. I heard somewhere that the video for this song featured the band parading down some Norwegian street with giant inflatable erect penises – small wonder it received such heavy MTV rotation.
