591-Kid Creole & The Coconuts Present Coati Mundi-Que Pasa/ Me No Pop I.

1980-Number 32 single.

Best Bit-At 0.04. They’ve got a lovely bunch of Coconuts.

‘Que Pasa/Me No Pop I’ was released as a stand alone single just prior to the release of Kid Creole & The Coconuts debut Album ‘Off the Coast of Me,’ in 1980. The songs writer, and co-producer was Andy Hernandez, better known by his stage name ‘Coati Mundi. Hernandez was born January 3rd, 1950, in New York City, United States, and had previously been a member of the very successful mid 1970’s Disco group ‘Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band,’ along with this songs other co-producer Kid Creole. As ‘Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savanah Band they released three studio Albums between 1976-1979, as well as the Billboard Number 27 hit single ‘Cherchez La Femme,’ from 1976. As well as providing vocals. and playing the Vibraphone in King Creole & The Coconuts, Hernandez has also released two solo studio Albums, and appeared in many films, and TV shows including ‘Who’s That Girl,’ starring Madonna, and ‘Miami Vice.’

Kid Creole was born Thomas August Darnell Browder on December 12th, 1950, in The Bronx, New York City, United States, he took his stage name from the 1958 film ‘King Creole’ starring Elvis Presley. Along with Hernandez, and Adriana Kaegi, who had also been a member of Dr. Savannah’s, they formed Kid Creole & The Coconuts in 1980, and the three of them remain active with the band at the time of writing. They have released 14 studio Albums to date, between 1980-2011, and although never achieving a top 40 single on Billboard, they have had six in the UK, including the 1982 Number 2 single ‘Annie I’m Not Your Daddy.’

With me not being fluent in Spanish, I can only make an educated guess as to what this song is about. It appears that the narrator and his girlfriend are not compatible anymore, and in his anger he tells her what he thinks of her. Whereas Popi and Olive Oil were made for each other, it appears that these two were not.

‘You ain’t got no class, with brains like a Medano glass. You’re full of fertiliser, number two is your appetiser.’
