King Kong

(Martin, Korba, Dancik, Rubin)

Word got out in 1975 that Dino De Laurentiis was producing a new King Kong movie and was looking for soundtrack music. Just Water made up this unabashed novelty song in minutes, with Marty singing.

Mitch had an ARP 2600 synthesizer - one of the original synthesizers that you played by programming it, since you couldn't play more than one note at a time on its keyboard. The jungle noises you hear are really a bunch of oscillators oscillating.

The band never figured out where to find Dino De Laurentiis. But "King Kong" still became their first single release on Branded Records, a record company Just Water created and funded with IOU's to various grandparents, uncles, and brothers.
