Information/Write-up

This was written by myself, Gary Alles & Jack Bush (my brother). We were at lunch laughing about what had happened in parliament and thought it would be hilarious to write a song "Do the Fuddle Duddle". We wrote it, got it recorded and released within two weeks. Doug Riley played on it and on the flip side was his instrumental. The song charted March 6, 1971 on the RPM Top Singles Chart and went to #82 on March 27. RPM also placed it at #86 on the Top 100 year-end chart.

Do The Fuddle Duddle: is a comic retro-60's-Beat take on a well publicized Canadian political House Of Commons incident
Funky Fuddle Duddle: is a funky near-instrumental jam

On February 16, 1971, Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau is said to have mouthed the words "fuck off" to an opposition party member in the House of Commons. When the media questioned him on the incident he said that the mouthed words were "fuddle duddle". Soon the words became part of the Canadian cultural vernacular.

The record was released within two weeks and charted March 6, 1971 on the (Canadian) RPM Top Singles Chart and went to #82 on March 27. RPM also placed it at #86 on the Top 100 year-end chart.
