I'm a sucker for the lesser known denizens of the glam rock era and Alvin Stardust, at least in the States, fits that bill in spades. As Shane Fenton, he had a couple of hits in England with his band The Fentones. He hit in 1961 with I'm a Moody Guy and then again in 1962 with Cindy's Birthday. By the mid-sixties the band was no more and Shane soldiered on until the early 70s when he recast his musical persona as the brooding, dangerous, Alvin Stardust. Think of a homicidal Elvis '68 impersonator as imagined by David Lynch. As Alvin, he immediately scored a number 2 hit in England in November of 1973 with this nifty slab of glam rockabilly, My Coo Ca Choo. Alvin went on to have five more hit singles in England, but he remains a total obscurity here in the States.
Here's Alvin in all his menacing glory. Also, here's hopin' you have a great weekend with your own Coo Ca Choo!
