K ronomyth 7.1: DREADFULLY FUNNY. Handily the high point of Bloody Tourists, “Dreadlock Holiday” was the band’s last big hit and remains a perennial favorite among fans. The song, inspired by the personal experiences of Graham Gouldman and Justin Hayward (according to online sources other than this online source), is silly enough to be socially harmless, although they won’t be making this the Jamaican National Anthem anytime soon. The band attempted (and failed) to replicate the reggae vibe on Look Hear with sheepish results. The B side, a nonalbum track later appended to the digital remaster of Tourists, is a bland rocker that should singlehandedly ensure Eric Stewart’s lifetime banishment from the Great Hall of Guitar Gods.
