Coconut Airways

Lately I've been digging a lot of 70's top 40 stuff, maybe it's just a natural reaction to the weather outside. It's pretty grey and uninviting out there these days and I think all this sunny pop music is just what I need.

The brilliantly named Typically Tropical was a studio project of Jeff Calvert and Geraint Hughes (aka Max West) devised after Calvert's own trip to Jamaica. It was a big hit in Europe but unfortunately, were doomed to be one hit wonders. Though they did later co-produce Judas Priest's "Sad Wings of Destiny". What? Really? They produced "Ripper"?

Super cool videos here and here.
