This is a real humdinger of a song- Ivan’s Real Wild Child from 1958. It is utterly fantastic with otherworldly guitar playing and a wonderful nasal vocal from Ivan. Ivan was Jerry Alison, one of Buddy Holly’s Crickets. Recorded as a joke, he didn’t want his name on it so hid behind the pseudonym Ivan. How could anyone not want their name on this? It’s probably best known as Iggy Pop’s only chart bothering record of the 1980s. Sadly, even Iggy can’t get anywhere near the original.

Finding this song, We’re Only Science, from Dot Allison’s second solo album We Are Science gives me the perfect excuse to post this picture of Dot.

Either way round, this was song was also worked on by ex-Two Lone Swordsman Keith Tenniswood.
