I present to you... THE SHAGGS (http://www.shaggs.com/sound/TheShaggs_MyPalFootFoot.mp3)???!!!!!

I heard them at a record store about 10 years ago. I practically fell to the floor laughing so hard!! Apparently, Frank Zappa thought they were raw genius. So-- I asked the person on-duty (the ever hilarious Kelly) what the heck was playing. He looked at the other guy who was working and said, "It's the Shaggs" and handed me the CD sleeve. I just had to have it because it was just appalling!!!

Anyhow... check 'em out. They are really different... when I mean "different", I actually mean "terrible". But it's entertaining. Sometimes we all just sit around listening to the Shaggs while sipping wine, needing some oddball escape.

You can read more about the Shaggs and how they came to be (the liner notes for their albums are hysterical!) by clicking this LINK (http://www.shaggs.com/).

Interesting... Very Painfully Interesting...

I did some investigating just to make sure you weren't messing around, and amazon has a couple of their albums for sale. I also couldn't believe the avg. review was 3.5 stars.:confused: Mind boggling...

It really IS something else. I like the quote from the one reporter who wrote something like, "I'd like to call Philosophy of the World the work of primitive American genius but I can't stop rolling on the floor..."

That spretty much sums it up. Oh, that and, "It brings my mind to a complete halt!"
