AllMusic Review by

Though credited to early-'80s punk favorites the Samoans, this is in fact the latest Metal Mike 7," as none of his old bandmates appear. And like his other singles, this is short and sweet and to the point, simple, cheap, happy Ramones-with-no-recording-budget punk. The A-side basically writes new words for the Saints' 1978 Eternally Yours closer "Do the Robot" -- Mike even retains the "dum dede dum dede dum dum dum" tag line, which we bet Chris Bailey himself borrowed in the first place -- in a nonsensical tale that somehow gets around to name-checking the famous slain Playboy centerfold as per the title, just as the old Samoans mentioned also-murdered actress Sharon Tate in "They Saved Hitler's Cock." The B-side, "Letter from Uncle Sam," is more of the same shenanigans, followed by a reprise of the A-side.
