I dicovered this via a Fabric Podcast by Craig Richards. They're very good podcasts that cover the influences of their resident DJs instead of just their club sets.

Johnny Guitar Watson b 1935 d 1996. Produced music from the conception of rock n roll in 1955 until the 1980s. This tune came toward the end of his career, released in 1980. It seems to have a unique funked up blues style.
He once recorded with Frank Zappa and wrote the hit Gangster of Love, later covered by The Steve Millar Band.
