Song about a caveman character in the dayly funny papers. In fact we only hear Gary Paxton (ex Skip & Flip) banging away on glasses with a vague chorus, using The Hollywood Argyles as a cover-up name to camouflage he was still under contract with Brent Records. The alias was inspired by the junction where the recording took place: Hollywood Boulevard & Argyle Street. When this actually hitted (n°1 US!), he toured with a Hollywood Argyle line-up that wasn't at all involved with this recording. Later Paxton produced Bobby 'Boris' Pickett's Monster Mash before ending up in the Lord.
Screaming Lord Sutch [as Jack The Ripper; same melody but faster]
Kingsmen [as Annie Fanny]
Roberto Carlos [as Brucutu]
Dallas Frazier [author]
Dave Van Ronk [with the Hudson Dusters]
Groupies Delite [hit NL]
Jacques Duvall [als N'importe quoi pour le fric]
This song was obviously also inspired by the 1957 Coasters' hit Searchin', while David Bowie used the expression "Look at that caveman go" in Life On Mars on Hunky Dory ('72).
