I got a request on my show today for a strange little single I had completely forgotten about - Spin The Bottle by "Jimmy." Little is known about Jimmy, but he comes off like a cross between Daniel Johnston and Gary Wilson. On the record sleeve, Jimmy is sporting lipstick and a stocking on his head, an Izod shirt, and he's holding a tennis racket. The single indicates 45 rpm, but at that speed, Jimmy's voice sounds like a chipmunk. At 33 rpm, the single is too slow, but the slowness seems to fit Jimmy's lugubrious, demented delivery, so that's the speed that the FMU staff settled on back when this record was in heavy rotation. Jimmy's real name appears to be James Dean, the record label is Fatima Records, and he seems to be from Los Angeles. The sleeve of the single says "Demand The Album!" in tiny type, but these are the only two songs from Jimmy we've ever come across.
