Song Of The Day 12/11/2012: The High Numbers - "Zoot Suit"

The High Numbers used to be The Who until their manager told them to change their name. They did, and their single "Zoot Suit"/"I'm The Face" flopped, so they sacked their manager and changed back to The Who. Mama always said homemade interrogative pronouns were the best. This song's lyric "I wear zoot suit jacket with side vents five inches long" was later referenced in "Cut My Hair," from The Who's rock opera Quadrophenia, Townshend's demo version of which was a Song Of The Day last month. The circle of mod.
