You know, as I said last week, on the occasion of seeing Barry Gibb perform a wonderful medley of Everly Brothers classics with Jimmy Fallon -- my respect for Gibb has been going through the roof of late. To my considerable astonishment, I might add.
That said, and just to prove to you that I haven't gone totally squishy, the aforementioned respect for Gibb does not as yet prevent me from presenting this hilarious live parody of the Bee Gees from Swedish TV in 1982.
I posted this clip several years ago, but until recently thought it had disappeared from YouTube. In any case, if you've never seen it before, I think you'll have to admit its right on the money. Those immoveable scarves are a particularly nice touch.
I should add that The Hee Bee Gee Bees -- who were in fact fellow Australians -- made three (count 'em three) full length albums, which is a pretty good run for a novelty act.
The first (from whence the song above derives) was the incomparable...
...and the last was the even funnier (IMHO)...
None of them seem to be on CD at the moment, but perhaps some antipodean PowerPop reader can enlighten us otherwise?
