    A true classic.

    First concert I ever went to was Mungo Jerry and Edison Lighthouse. Very nostalgic.

    “If her Daddy’s rich, take her out for a meal,
    If her Daddy’s poor, just-a do what you feel’.

    As soon as I was old enough to understand the rampant misogyny of this I developed a deep loathing for this track, and became a life-long Feminist-with-a-capital-F. So yeah, thanks Mungo!

    Also, get those darn sideburns trimmed. They’re not big, they’re not clever and they make you look like a$$.

      With the sideburns and mustaches, the entire group is sort of proto-hipster (except for the Wolfman Jack-a-like on the keyboards).

        Is the group proto-hipster or are hipsters just retro-Mungo?
