The Equals - Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys (1971)

The Clash covered this band with "Police On My Back". Eddie Grant is in this band, who later penned the cheesy "Electric Avenue" but also way more killer dance floor cuts. Dj Harvey's side project Map of Africa also covered this song. Need I say more? I first heard this band at Little Joy in Echo Park. I shouldn't have just revealed that. Oops. The Map of Africa version is on the 2006 Sal Principato & Kaos mix "Collectors Series" (which totally rules btw).
