Bugs vs Ann-Margret

There's an uploader to YouTube, fardonbeat66,  who puts up a steady flow of garage and beat stuff always accompanied by edited clips of films from the era. Some work, some don't, but this is worth a look. The tune is the brilliantly messy 1966 B-side, Slide, by short-lived Massachusetts band The Bugs. The clips are from the 1964
shock-flick Kitten With a A Whip starring the impossibly desirable
Ann-Margret, as it happens the subject of a heartbreaking feature in Sideburn #17. Great (though brief) hand-held camera work in the manic fight scene. MP
