Five Star Songs: The High Numbers- Zoot Suit
Before The Who became The Who and grew into one of the biggest hard rock bands in the world they were known for a few months in 1964 as The High Numbers. They released one single, "I'm The Face/Zoot Suit", under The High Numbers moniker before changing to their now infamous name.
Zoot Suit is the more original song on the single but it was still a rip off of an old song called "Country Fool" by an old R&B group called The Showmen. Of course this was the original mod era and this track was perfect for that time with lyrics that reference Ivy League jackets, inch wide ties and brogue shoes. Listen below:
