      Have had this single since it was released in 1983 and just listened to it after maybe 20-25 years. What shocked me was listening to Wet My Whistle on the B side of this single and how much it sounds like The Whispers - Rock Steady which was realeased a few years after. Nice discovery ;)

        I feel it's worth noting that Apu from the Simpsons loves this song (see: The Jolly Bengali segment from the episode 22 Short Films About Springfield).

          'Freak-A-Zoid (Instrumental') is actually all vocoder! Only available on this 12" promo copy.

            The reason that this PROMO version is so great is the fact of the B side. Its called Instrumental, but actually its all Vocoder, and missing all the normal vocals. Making this a pure electro vocoder bomb.

              This classic electro track is where the well worn vocoder sample "Please Report to the Dancefloor" originates from, as used by Dave Lee in Energize - "Report to the Dancefloor", and by several others I can't recall at the moment.

              "Freakazoids, Robots, Please Report To The Dancefloor"

              More minimal and electronic than later vocal-based releases from Midnight Star.
