REWIND: Les Vikings - 'Lola Lola'

Here's one I found only last week after being directed to a superb Twitter account by the name of @45ADay, who uncover lots of often-obscure 7" treasures from the past. Apparently released at some point during the 70's, the psychedelic freakbeat funk of 'Lola Lola' was the B-side of a single entitled 'Tongava Maro Zalahi E'. After a brief internet search, it seems that there were two different groups by the name of Les Vikings, the other one a Caribbean outfit who (after a quick listen) have a distinctively contrasting style. The Les Vikings responsible for 'Lola Lola' were in fact a band from Madagascar, who only released this one 7" single.
