Eddie Japan - Rubber Skeleton Part One

from by Various Artists



In the late '80s, I was playing in a Providence band called The Blakes and we were lucky enough to open for Scruffy the Cat at the legendary Living Room. It was very exciting for us to be on a bill with Scruffy because they were from Boston and "My Baby She's All Right" was all over the radio. My girlfriend at the time even had a big blue car she christened "The Bat Mobile" from the line in the song. The night of the gig, I was struck by how friendly Charlie was to a young, unknown band like ours as he chatted with us in the dressing room. Our bass player had on a pair of very sharp, colorful shoes, and Charlie asked, "Hey, man, are those things street legal?" We all got a big laugh out of that.

The first song Eddie Japan ever recorded was Charlie and Nichole Ferree's "Rubber Skeleton Part One." We are very honored to have it included within this collection. -- David Santos
