Author Notes

Ostensibly a satire on hippy culture, 'Apeman' caused a minor uproar upon release in 1970 when singer Ray Davies was forced to fly back to London to re-record the line "the air pollution is fogging up my eyes" because the word "fogging" was misheard by many in the UK as something far ruder. 
 
Although the novelty of the Caribbean piano and the light hearted content of the lyrics are interesting over 40 years later, the faux-accent and 'Apeman' references are not exactly considered politically correct subject matter in 2019.
 
This song is a part of C3X.
 
Drums by Dash Riprock.
