Leon Peterson – Dont Squeeze The Sherm – Angel Dust Disco
“Unaware of Nat Sherman cigarettes (they once had a famous store on New York’s Fifth Avenue) or a user of the drug angel dust, the significance of this obscure song title meant nothing.
However it all becomes clear when you hear the 45 with its chorus ‘Angel dust is making a fool of us, This PCP will send you to eternity.’
At the height of the angel dust craze cigarettes were apparently dipped in phencyclidine (PCP), an hallucinogenic drug which became a huge problem in the States in the late 70s.”
