The Cramps 'Bop Pills'

In 1956 Macy 'Skip' Skipper released Bop Pills, a rockabilly hymn to the pleasures of dancing with the aid of chemicals, a full three decades plus before acid house. I thought I had the original on some format but can't find it anywhere, and if it turns up maybe it should be left for Friday's rockabilly series anyway. This version is by Bagging Area favourites The Cramps, released in 1990 on the wonderful Stay Sick album. Lux and Ivy turn in a fantastic cover, with Lux's vocals particularly deranged.
