Bakersfield Boogie Boys

If you put The Flying Lizards and DEVO in an industrial blender you'd get Bakersfield Boogie Boys..
This bizarre early one-off from the Rhino stable is a mysterious bunch (three masked men and an unpictured woman) who's strange concept 12" is a quartet of skewed reinterpretations. A must if you must.

Bakersfield Boogie Boys - Okie from Muskogee 12" - 1980

I have been looking for "I Get Around" for over 35 years! I had it on a crappy tape for less than the first 3 of those years. And a friend told me it was "The Bakersfield Boogie Boys" and I kept that in my head this whole time (all the while believing he must be wrong, and that it was some rare Flying Lizards B-side).
There isn't a "thank you" strong enough to express my appreciation for your sharing this! Truly. Thank you!

Thank you, sir, for making this available. I only recently heard "I Get Around" by this band and could not figure out who recorded the cover. Like the other poster, I thought it was the Flying Lizards, but thanks to you, found not only the correct band but the MP3 as well!
