No Matter What Shape Your Stomach's In (The T-Bones)

7 FEBRUARY 1966


Instrumental group the T-Bones’ single ‘No Matter What Shape Your Stomach's In’ was on its way to a peak position of #3 on the US Hot 100 Billboard chart. It was not a hit in the UK.

This was their only hit of any note (a follow-up single reached #62), and was based on the music and title of a famous Alka-Seltzer commercial of the time. None of the band actually played on the recording of this hit.

The clip below is from a US TV show, complete with mandatory zany off-stage antics.
