When Sex Leers Its Inquisitive Head (CD)
Peter Wyngarde's masterful portrayal of the TV sleuth/crime-writing sex monster JASON KING was created for ITC's Department S show in 1968, resplendent in a collar-and-tie of raw pink silk, and a suit that made heads turn round! When it came to the obligatory spin-off album however, nothing you'd heard before could possibly have prepared you for Wyngarde's 1970 vinyl love-letter. A collection of contemporary standards it most certainly was not. The album included songs which exploded into rampant rages of male sexuality, couched in an aesthetic abandon that set off alarm bells even in those permissive times. The record's outrageousness often overwhelms what would still be one of the more bizarre episodes in popular music. The listener is unlikely to forget 'Hippie And The Skinhead', where Wyngarde reads out a letter written to "The Times" by two Home Counties skinhead girls, or the tale of "Billy the Queer, Pilly Sexy Hippie...", sung over an incongruous, Nashville backing. And there's even something for discerning lovers of late Sixties English rock as he takes on the Attack's 'Neville Thumbcatch', written by Vic Smith.
