The Shaggs, an American all-female garage band made up of the Wiggin sisters Dorothy “Dot”, Betty and Helen formed by in 1968 on the insistence of their father, Austin, who believed that his mother had predicted their rise to stardom. They didn’t and disbanded after the death of their dad. Listen to their only album release, Philosophy of the World.”
Perhaps the best band of all time…
Though rather harmless, mom still couldn’t wait to get this metal duo out of her basement.
The Gert Jonnys, a Swedish 70s – 80s dance band, found little noteriety until their promo pics began swirling on the internet. Go figure. Oh, the guy on the right? My dear old grandma had the same hairdo. Enjoy their song “Änglahund.”
Virginia. Where the streets have no name.
Myles & Lenny, the friendliest rockers in Mr Gilberts 11th grade algebra class. Give a listen to their 1974 soft rock song “Can You Give It All to Me.”
The gospel stylings of Colporteur Twins with some Amish dude and the guy who runs the counter at 7/11.
…And then cowboy hat guy whispered, “I know who likes you.”
The band Areas 57, the place where they hide the little metal band lead singer.
I believe this band was called Child’s Play, which makes their thrusting jump suits all the more disturbing.
When they weren’t trying to land a Las Vegas magic act, this AOR duo of Caryl Phillps and John McLeod attempted to fill the airwaves with rockin’ songs like “Young Girl.”
Yep. There’s always that one guy in the back…
These frisky British rockers, Fringe Benefit, had high hopes in late 60s – early 70 when their song “All in Vain” hit the charts. Unfortunately, people thought it sounded too much like Rod Stewart’s “Maggie Mae” and the band fizzled. Give “All in Vain” a listen.
This is a good place to stop. Yes. Definitely stop.
