Nervous Norvus- APE CALL

I always wished this guy was my grandpa. Another novelty hit, this song was actually a pretty big hit in 1956, the follow up to the ground-breaking "Transfusion". The lyrics to this one are pretty amazingly goofy, but his phrenetic voice and the extremely gratuitous use of the Tarzan sample is what makes this one so memorable. Nervous Norvus, or Jimmy Drake, invented a whole lingo with which he described his world. There is now a compilation out on Norton Records, Stone Age Woo: the Zorch Sounds of Nervous Norvus, which I recommend highly, because its not just the few novelty or Dr. Demento songs that we know, but really a whole body of work that somehow creates and encompasses his wildly fucked up cosmology. This is another song that ain't for everybody, but its worth a listen if not a download.
