Cicadas - That's What I Want 7" GER RCA Victor, 47-8339, 1964
A much covered song - this version is nice and beaty, with a strange, almost dub, intro. There's two other Australian versions. The best is a good, wyld reading by the Henchmen that wasn't released at the time and made it on to the Ugly Things CD. Tasmania's Kravats also did a slightly more subdued version.
The Cicadas had three more 7"s before moving to the UK and becoming the Gibsons.
Released in Australia on RCA 101552.
