Song of the day: Kid Creole & the Coconuts- Annie, I’m Not Your Daddy


In the eighties, there was a group who called themselves Kid Creole & The Coconuts. No, this is not a joke, this is reality. The brain behind the group was August Darnell, or actually I should say: is. The group still exists, mixing disco and latin music with big band and more styles. August is Kid Creole, and the three lovely ladies in the picture are his backing vocals, the Coconuts. Before Darnell became Kid Creole (yes, stolen from Elvis Presley) he worked as English teacher and he was working with his brother in the band Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band. (Crazy about long names, he is). In 1982 he released a new album with his new group, Tropical Gangsters (or in the US: Wise Guy). A lot of songs became hits, and the song of the day was one of them. Enjoy
