Yet Another Early Clue to the New Direction

From 1969, here's everybody's favorite possibly insane sister act The Shaggs with their, uh, I have no idea what the hell it is, "My Pal Foot Foot." Animation done years after the fact, of course, but I think it catches the spirit of the, uh, song, rather well, don't you?



As always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

Not holding my breath, though.

You've really got a hate jones for those guys, don't you?

Not a criticism, just an observation....

Or just songs about shagging.

Oh, wait, they're all about shagging.

Like that would be difficult...

steve simels said...

Okay, I'm really sorry.

I think the connection here was a little....

tenuous.

It's group harmony. Which there is here, if only to the extent the song is actually music. I think.

I am ashamed....

This week's Listomania subject pales in comparison to the song in the clue, and especially the marvy cartoon. I am one of those crazy folks who has listened to the Shaggs more times than I should be willing to admit. True idiot savants of rock'n'roll, bless their hearts.
