B. Bumble & the Stingers


This short-lived act was one of the US acts formed by pop svengali Kim Fowley (b. 21 July 1942, Manila, the Philippines) as an store for his creation/songwriting skills at Rendezvous Information. Their 1961 launch, ‘Bumble Boogie’ (offering Ernie Freeman in the piano), an version of Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s ‘The Airline flight FROM THE Bumble Bee’, reached amount 21 in america chart. It had been, however, the next season’s ‘Nut Rocker’ (with pianist Lincoln Mayorga) that brought them long lasting fame. Though it just reached amount 23 in america, this propulsive instrumental, an irreverent boogie-woogie reading of Pyotr Sick’yich Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, fared far better in the united kingdom where it soared to #1 1 and, a decade later, once again reached the very best 20 on reissue. The music group – B. Bumble (who as of this juncture was R.C. Gamble (b. Spiro, Oklahoma, USA), Terry Anderson (b. Harrison, Arkansas, USA; electric guitar), Jimmy King (tempo electric guitar) and Don Orr (drums)) – finished a UK tour in 1962. Although just compilations can be found featuring variations on a single theme, ‘Bumble Boogie’, ‘Apple Knocker’ and ‘Bee Hive’, their one main original hit continues to be ‘Nut Rocker’ – it really is established for immortality.
