What ever happened?

He jumped the shark when he appeared on Highlander and let the song be used in a Not Actually 24 Days Later but Filmed in North England Like You Give a Fuck but Malcolm McDowell Needed to Make a Car Payment So He's Here . . . for a Bit.

You're showing your age! The original was by Charlie McCoy and called "Stone Fox Chase." :)

Always thought Area Code 615 was the Japanese original. There ya go.

I only remember Bob Harris from much later repeats and the Fast Show parody.

Charlie McCoy played with Area Code 615, so you're correct. He was the harmonica player and composed the song.

I just watched a YouTube tutorial on how to play it. You need at least four harmonicas* because the song keeps changing key, and almost all the notes are 'draw': that is, the player has to suck, not blow.

*I suppose you could play it on one chromatic harmonica, if you were skilled enough, but Charlie played it on regular diatonic mouth organs.

Area Code 615 was a group formed of individual session musicians, who all lived in the same (phone) area code. The dialling code was, you guessed it, 615.

It's a bastard to play because of the key changes, (it's a bastard to play anyway!) You couldn't really do it on a chromatic: you can't "bend" the draw notes, (or bend the upper register notes by over-blowing), to get that bluesy sound.

Chromatics, of course, have their place. Have a listen to Brendan Power...

Hard to fathom how such a badly recorded, badly produced track got released at all.

Non-interesting factoid #471. Chas Jankel's sister and early music video pioneer Annabel, was a co-creator of Max Headroom.

Quite a fascinating, gifted man, though. As I recall, he had a huge cult following back in the day.

This song hit No2 in the UK charts for The Stranglers in 1982, their highest ever hit. All the DJs raved about it thinking it was about NBLs. Things changed a bit when they discovered it was about heroin. :D
