Electric Boys – Mary In The Mystery World (Bloom) b/w Knee Deep in You (Bloom) & Why Don’t We Do It In The Road? (Lennon/McCartney)

Limited Edition Numbered Clear Vinyl Etched Disc


Swede Conny Bloom was one of the finest songwriters to come out of the late 80s glam/funk scene and this iconic track was a firm favourite with the hair metal crowd.

Supercharged yet psychedelic, the Electric Boys could mix it with the very best and this single, taken from their second album, Groovus Maximus, typified the band’s ability to cross genres and appeal to a wider crowd. Debut album Funk O’ Metal Carpet Ride was a huge success in the UK and the band built up a big British following supporting Thunder. One memorable show, at Newcastle’s much missed Riverside venue, saw Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis join Bloom on stage – with the Chilis playing the same city on the same night.

Reformed in 2009 it seems the Electric Boys are ready to ride their funk metal carpet again and we can’t wait. But whether they’ll be able to release anything as vivid as this clear etched vinyl mounted on a yellow insert remains to be seen – as 12 inchers go number 2,712 in a run of 7,500 is a collector’s dream.
