THE BARRON KNIGHTS-Lazy Fat People/In The Night Dutch Columbia DB 8161 1967
"Lazy Fat People" is a firmly tongue and (in?) cheek number about...well...lazy fat people. It's jaunty and a bit "odd" in the same way "Whiskey Man" or "Boris The Spider" were. It's vocal delivery seems to anticipate Queen but the rapidly ascending harmonies add to the whole satirical feel to the number by giving it an almost acapella feel. Lyrically I'm sure people were and possibly are offended by it but I'll take that with a grain of salt as I quite enjoy it. The B-side is another pointless exercise in, well a pointless B-side.
