Radiodiffusion Internasionaal Annexe



I have come across many songs that pay tribute to Western songs – especially in South East Asia. The Cambodian Rocks, Thai Beat A Go Go and Thai Funk series are littered with songs that sound a whole lot like songs you’ve heard before. What you think might be a version of Ray Charles‘s “What’d I Say” is actually called “Why Do You Walk Like A Drunkard”. But an outright parody is something I had never really seen before I got my hands on this single.

The name of the band is The Four Dummies, which was comprised of four comedians from Hong Kong. The person who sold me this single told me that one of them was Chen Kwan Min and another was Sai Kua Bao, but he could not remember the names of the other two. Beyond that, I have not been able to find anything beyond that.

If you have any further information on the band, please contact me or leave a comment.

Catalog number YE 202 on Beauty Records or Malaysia. No release date given.

Sounds like a version of I Want to Hold Your Hand of the Beatles.
