Music Monday: Poor House Rockers

Even though he's backed by the amazing productions of Bullwackie, Clive Field Marshall's sing-talking style is definitely not for everyone. Still, the 1981 album "Poor House Rockers" is a little-known gem, with hilarious lyrics (once you've hear it enough to decipher them) and great backing tracks. Despite the rustic cover art, the songs-- except for Island in the Sun, which makes funs of tourists in Jamaica-- are mostly about Marshall's exploits around NYC. This song tells the story of Marshall's encounter with a clueless state trooper.

After the jump, the title track.

Have a great Music Monday!
