The Useless Playboys - Bim Bam Baby b/w Cool (1994)

A fun picture disc 45 with colorful silk-screened cover art by poster artist Frank Kozik, released back in 1994, smack dab at the beginning of the 'lounge revival'.

The Useless Playboys called themselves a 'Swing Noir' band, they were together from '89 - '95. Looks like they were based out of Richmond, Virginia.

Frank Sinatra released a version of 'Bim Bam Baby' in 1952.
'(But I Was) Cool' was recorded by Oscar Brown, Jr and released in 1960 on his 'Sin and Soul' LP.
