Best Thing Ever: Alex Harvey on the Old Grey Whistle Test 1973

I had never heard of psycho-glam maniac (or Zappa imitator, whichever you prefer) Alex Harvey until I stumbled upon this insane video of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band out-of-context in some comments section.

I'm just saying... it's probably the best song (not by Tom Waits) about losing your virginity in a whorehouse since "House of the Rising Sun."

Josh tells me this is a Scott Walker cover, and so it is.

But this is way better.
