Album Review

[COLL] Pink Flamingos – “Pink Flamingos” – [Hip-O Records]

Albion Moonlight   3/10/2023   A Library

From the filthy mind of John Water’s comes this collection of 50s songs that constitute the soundtrack to his cult classic “Pink Flamingos”. On their own these mostly by now well known tunes don’t seem out of the ordinary, but curation by John Waters shines a light on the salacious underbelly of these songs.

“Chicken Grabber” by the Nite Hawks, will you ever be able to look at this song the same? With the line ‘If she smiles then beef steak become well done’ Little Richard’s “The Girl Can’t Help It”, similarly tickles the imagination. Even Patti Page’s “(How Much is) That Doggie in The Window” takes on new significance. Recommended and tell ’em John Waters sent ya!
