Natasha - Iko Iko b/w I Should Have Known Better (1982) - single

Natasha England is a english singer, former member of The Flirts (1979) and Natasha And The Delites (1980). She gets solo with the song "Iko Iko" in 1982.  "Iko Iko" is a much-covered New Orleans song that tells of a parade collision between two "tribes" of Mardi Gras Indians and the traditional confrontation. The song, under the original title "Jock-A-Mo", was written in 1953 by James "Sugar Boy" Crawford in New Orleans. The story tells of a "spy boy" (i.e. a lookout for one band of Indians) encountering the "flag boy" or guidon carrier for another "tribe". He threatens to "set the flag on fire".
