I love vinyl records, especially when I get them cheap as free at thrift stores. Heh heh. This blog will showcase some of the funny and bizarre stuff I've found. (and the occasional just plain cool ones) It also highlights the fashions of the time. Hope you get a kick out of them!
Featured at Retrospace! :)
Well, sorta. This is about as risqué as they got. Heh. Two very traditional gentleman crooners. I know them best (for better or worse) from the SCTV parody when "they" (Eugene Levy and Martin Short) appeared on The Sammy Maudlin Show, much to his chagrin. :p Enjoy!
Aaaaaand, here's the back cover:
Business as usual. Is it "just my imagination, or do those two cats bring everybody down?" ;)
...but kinda catchy, too. ;) This is his second—and last completely original—album.
Klaus Nomi: simply a product of early 80s New Wave, or simply a big Astro Boy fan?
Yes/no? Heh heh, just kidding.
I decided to isolate the section of the back cover that wasn't black. I quite like it, actually, though it's funny how nothing quite lines up with each other. The star/stripe thing, the Nomi logo and the text are all slanted at different angles. Though slight, I noticed it when I had to rotate my picture a bit.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway, here's a video of "Simple Man":
Seems slightly familiar. As I mentioned at the outset, I do find it kinda catchy.
Roosevelt had his own album! To be honest, I don't remember him much. He was likely gone entirely by the time I started watching. Apparently this is a 1974 re-release of the 1971 album "The Year of Roosevelt Franklin." Wonder why they changed the name.
Joe Raposo. Man, could that guy write memorable music...
