SongoftheDay: HIPPY DIPPY DOO by ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT

rftc6.previewIt amazes me that atom Willard was 16 when he recorded this song with Rocket From The Crypt.  Perhaps I was smashing out a few jams on my drums at age 16, but touring in a full on punk rock band, that’s just nuts.  This tune is one of my favorites simply because of how it feels.  The bounce is fantastic, and the vocal cadence is anthemic.  Not on huge rotation on my deck, but this band never lets me down when she does spin.  Also, it has always been a fun game for Dan and I to take the piss out of the so-called neo-hippy movement, with their fucking hacky-sacks and drum circles.  This song feels like it might be doing the same thing.  Ha, ha – silly hippies. – FATS
