Mugwump label
"Sleepin' on his mugwump, playing on his Jew's harp, music crawlin' into your skin,

"Daddy in his Zoot suit, mammy playin' skin flute, sister makes a swine-hair grin,

"Doin' that crazy Cajun cakewalk dance!"


 

Reviews

"Savoy + Def-Jam + Rock'n'Roll = ART. The Mugwump Dance is a crazed electronic slab of sci-fi—a potential dancefloor killer. PJ Proby has made a Swamp Rock Def Jam distorted feedback ju-ju nightmare of a disc that'll have us all crawling the walls with him, and naturally it's brilliant. The man's a genius."

KRIS KIRK, Melody Maker

 

"The most commercial track is Proby's own composition The Mugwump Dance, with its vicious dancefloor beat."
