Performed by: The Jet Set Junta
Music by: L. B. (Link) Harrison
Lyrics by: L. B. (Link) Harrison

It’s a debut in HCSC for this British band, though not the first participation for Andrew Mendelson. Good luck!

In their own words:
It is the summer of the night, London’s eyes be tight shut, all but twelve peepers and six hip malchicks who prance the street. Friends here are your new groovies so please abound to the sound of THE JET SET JUNTA. The Jet Set Junta have been writing and recording on and off since 1986. A fluid concept, the one constant is lead L. B. (Link) Harrison. Sit back, enjoy and bask in their glow.

Lyrics:

Meet my friend he’d like to meet to discuss his business plan
He’s got a new initiative to make a thousand grand
He’s fired with ambition
And wants to be
Self-made man

It’s a great idea you’ll soon agree and one you won’t regret
Here’s hoping that you’ll come and join the syndicate
He’ll need some funds and pretty soon to plug the deficit
He’s fired with ambition
And wants to be
Self-made man

He’s got a wife and kids at home he’s eager to support
A mistress in a flat in town and an ageing beat up Porsche
He needs some extra income to pay for his divorce
He’s fired with ambition
And wants to be
Self-made man
