Play Music - Embed Audio Files - Hindu On A Honda

In what can only be described as an attempted coattail ride of Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash" single, comes this not-exactly-PC, monster-themed record from Count Down & The Moonsters.

"Hindu On A Honda" has all the essential elements of a 60's Halloween party starter - brooding minor key chord progression, references to surfing & the protagonist's hag, other-worldly background vocals, and the story of a drag race gone bad.

This record has been comped numerous times, but the 45 seems to be scarce, with little-to-no record of sale on sites like popsike.com & collectorsfrenzy.com.
