And speaking as we were last week of 60s Girl Group pop psychedelia, let's just say that you should NOT attempt to operate heavy machinery after watching the clip below.
You've been warned.
No, that it is not a parody, and no, the brunette on the right is NOT, as I immediately assumed, Jo Anne Worley of Laugh-In fame. That is, in fact, a legitimate L.A. girl group called The Cake, who were managed (and conceived, one assumes) by the same Greene/Stone production/management team that handled Sonny & Cher and Buffalo Springfield.
Obviously, as The Cake, they never quite went on to fame and or/fortune, but they did continue to work in music-related areas; two of them went off immediately after the demise of The Cake to become back-up singers for Dr. John, while the third went on to perform with and eventually marry Chris Wood of Traffic.
That said, that clip (which is from 1967) is still utterly confounding. What in god's name were they thinking?
