The Animals - Send You Back To Walker

I was listening to Peter Noone's radio show the other day and he played this song. Noone (Herman of Herman's Hermits) has a pretty cool radio show on Sirius. He explained that Eric Burdon is from Walker, Newcastle upon Tyne. He said that it is a tough place, in fact so rough that way back when, the local picts once stopped the Scots from taking over England. Tough blokes, those Walker lads.

Interesting coincidence that both Noone and Burden were in protracted legal squabbles with their ex bandmates and are now forbidden to perform under their former eponymous namesakes.
