Independent label: This one is another band-in-disguise single courtesy of BIG BEAT records. This EP is billed as "The Bananamen Play Songs Made Popular By the Cramps". The back sleeve cleverly describes the tracks as having been recorded in 1965 on the Hava Banana label out of Minneapolis, Minnesota and then being lost forever until a press release found in a Minneapolis junk shop fired up Big Beat to track down a copy of the single and re-release it. a side project of UK garage trash legends THE STINGRAYS! The Bananamen was their first secret project, followed later in 1987 by their ESSENTIAL LP under the name of UG AND THE CAVEMEN Distributed By Big Beat Records.
