Which is pretty amazing. The most literal video is also the most ironic. I’m not sure Wolfman Jack would approve.

Keith, on the other hand. moved to Jamaica at some point, and ended up having a band of local musicians record as Wingless Angels.

The beauty of Keef’s album with Wingless Angels is it really is the music his Jamaican neighbors/friends/accomplices played. As he says in his book, you can hear the crickets.
