Sometimes things get sooo bad that they are good.
Does anyone know The Shaggs? They were an all sister band that were forced together by their religious father in the late 60s. Until that point the girls had not been allowed to listen to music. Their father was told by a psychic that the girls would become a famous band, so he bought them all instruments, set them up in the cellar and forced them to practice every day for years. Eventually, he made them record their efforts and released an album, which was derided by just about everybody.
Years later, someone found an copy in a bin, loved it, and tried to get it re-printed. The album suddenly became very influential. Kurt Cobain said it was one of his favourite albums. Frank Zappa said they were better than The Beatles.
Their music takes some getting used to, but it's actually very catchy...
ARGHHH!! I haven't thought about that record in years. A flatmate used to own & it drag it out after drinking too many shandies. I do not thank you for the memories
I always thought Frank Zappa had more sense than that. What language were they "singing" in??? :eeek:
This just defies explanation, confounds reason, I can hardly type,...I'm speechless.
...and it shows!
That did not help my headache at all :eeek:
I submit to you Hawkwind - X In Search of Space
When I was in college a professor of mine who knew I was a musician asked me if i wanted to hear the worst album of all time. I said sure and was presented with X In Search of Space. I think this is where my hatred for hippies was born.
I actually have a small collection of Hammond albums. Solid Gold Hammond by Harry Stoneham is a actually rather good. Alas, the same cannot be said for my 'Ena Baga plays the happy hammond' collection.
I had actually met this guy years ago. He had an office in Camden, my sister-in-law worked for him. Laid her off without warning just before Christmas. I thought he was a pr**k
Mr Hallack, you can see why...it appears Slim's middle section is full of a brown substance. Can't tell from here though...
Gay dogs? Sounds odd these days but we know what he meant....
That dog looked happy but not...well you know.
In case you want to do something useful with those albums, which with most of these records means not playing them, I give you this...
Turn the album cover into a box!
Here's another awful album I like. In fact, it was the 1st album I ever bought when I was 6. It took me a long time to save up for this budget Geoff Love Orchestra album of disco versions of sci-fi movie themes!...
Here's another travesty of an album and should appall just about everyone at this site:
Disco versions of 1920s and 30s hits "Deco Disco"
Be thankful I can't find any online samples for you!
You know, I'll bet that that record in mint condition would be worth a pretty penny.
I've always thought that this cover was a winner in the bad taste category. It's a pretty darn funny album, though.
OK, I think we have something special here. Heartfelt sympathies to the Ethel Merman fans in the FL.
One more. What is with gospel albums having the most bizarre looking people?
Merman and Disco.
You know, I just can't see that era without it!
I love the beat, if they could just turn that singer down.
Irwin the Disco Duck
"When mother wasn't half a word" :lol: Reminds me of part of a Rat Pack bit where Sammy was trying to do a number and Frank kept on correcting him.
Frank: " A 'mother,' you mother!"
Sammy: "Gee, he just said half a word there, didn't he?"
I found the LP online and gave it half a listen. Don't think I'll be putting it on my iPod.
My vote is for Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band's "Trout Mask Replica". I don't care if Lennon loved them. Too far out, man.
