Sir Bodsworth Rugglesby III - Klaatu (1976)
It's hard to believe that people believed this prog pop band were The Beatles in disguise! Klaatu definitely could sound like The Fab Four on certain songs, but on today's track, it sounds like vintage Sesame Street to me. When hearing this record as a child, I was completely convinced Jim Henson, not Paul McCartney, was behind this wacky little ditty about........well....... going to Hell and coming back alive. It was a simpler time!! The Muppets in Labyrinth cursed, so I though my idea was completely plausible! Anyway, Check out their first four records and hear why Ween graduated from Pushing little daisies to songs about Mollusks! Those boys from New Hope, PA are the closest thing we will ever have to the Canadian anomaly of Klaatu ever again!
First Listen: Balún, 'Prisma Tropical'
