Punk Flashback: Elton Motello "Jet Boy Jet Girl" (Lyrics possibly *NSFW*)

 Elton Motello is both the moniker of Alan Ward (aka Alan Timms, formerly a member of Bastard along with Damned guitarist Brian James), the lead singer and songwriter, and the name of the band itself. Debuting in 1977 on Belgian record label Pinball.

This first came to my attention 20 yrs. later on the kick ass John Waters (the self-proclaimed master of "bad taste") compilation CD "A Date With John Waters " 

"Jet Boy, Jet Girl" is a risqué song about a 15-year-old boy's sexual relationship with another guy, who then rejects him for a girl. With its chorus of "ooh ooh ooh ooh, he gives me head," it has been embraced as something of a gay punk anthem.

This song KICKS ASS!
