Review about The Tubes songs

The early Tubes were propelled by the musical genius of the late Vince Welnick, the production skills of Al Kooper, and Fee Waybill's over-the top consumer satire tirades and parodies. Their debut LP, which is capped off by this song, is an under-appreciated gem of prog-punk sleaze, brilliantly scored and perfectly realized. A true classic!
