I remember this song co-written by and performed by John Kongos in 1971 under the title "He's Gonna Step on You Again".

It was very popular with DJ's in discos as a "floor filler" to motivate the reluctant teenagers who could not dance when sober - like me {#Wink}

This cover version is at least as good as the original version and I suppose it had the same effect almost 30 year later.

Love this! Always thought it was Robyn Hitchcock till I checked just now. In any case, it's a great triippy get-off-work slam-a-beer song! So cool to see the Japanese CD cover! It says in katakana, "Hap-py Man-days" and makes me feel natsukashii for my 20 years in日本.

In general, pretty much OK.  The whistling? Meh.

Really, fred, all you need are some cool shades and a vague hand gesture:

"You're twisting my melon, man" - wtf? How on earth do you twist a melon? Is this a mondegreen of mine, or some strange stoner slang from the Madchester period?

Wow, that's a pretty amazing piece of synchronicity. This album came out in 1990, and in 1991 Primal Scream came out with their "Screamadelica" album, which is almost a carbon-copy of this sound. I never knew about the Happy Mondays. I wonder what the rest of the album is like? I sure played the hell out of that Primal Scream disc...

(Just a quick post-script - the cover art for the "Screamadelica" album was done by the label's in-house artist, Paul Cannell, who was allegedly inspired by a damp water spot he'd seen on the Creation Records offices ceiling after taking LSD - I'm sure it helped many people enjoy the record)

I am discovering this; I found it irritating...
Then I listened to several versions (Happy Mondays, Def Leppard, Party Boys).

John Kongo's original is exactly that: an unheard of concept, a UFO of a song - in the best sense of the words. Almost experimental.
I'd give the Party Boys kudos for the nice energy of their cover... the others aren't bringing anything new to the table, in my opinion.
