The Goons recorded a number of records including the song “I’m Walking Backwards for Christmas” (which was originally sung by Spike Milligan in the show during a musicians’ strike).

Other notable recordings were “Bloodnok’s Rock and Roll Call” (which was the first British record with the word “rock” in its title) and on its B-side “The Ying Tong Song”.

‘Ying Tong’  was later reissued as an A-side in the mid-1970s and became a novelty hit.
