Hi Darryl! Hit me with the best of the worst, baby.

Hey hey! Hope you enjoy!

Yes, that's not right, is it?

Hi Otis! Welcome to last Thursday!

.. or Wednesday even!
Avatar 2:04pm Mr Fab:

Was this song mentioned in your "David Bowie Made Me Gay" book, Darryl?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Otis Fodder:

I live perpetually in a bit of a time warp, so the date makes complete sense. :)
Avatar 2:07pm worldsworstrecords:

yes. Mr Fab, it was
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Rich in Washington:

at least now I have a chance to not make as much mashed potatoes this time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Otis Fodder:

Arcesia is a favorite. Really nice vinyl reissue from Guerssen a couple of years ago. This is one of, if not, my fav cut on the album. Thanks for playing Darryl!
Avatar 2:07pm worldsworstrecords:

It was written by a guy called Leslie Sarony (IIRC) who wrote a number of famous comic songs
Avatar 2:08pm worldsworstrecords:

You're welcome Otis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Rich in Washington:

Wow! This is something!
Avatar 2:10pm worldsworstrecords:

..'s marvellous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Otis Fodder:

Yes!! Andreas Dorau! Big fan of Dorau / Der Plan, etc...
Avatar 2:12pm worldsworstrecords:

I love this record
Avatar 2:13pm Mr Fab:

I was thinking this had a Mute records sound, and sho 'nuff. Very Fad Gadget. If Fad Gadget ever did a crap kid's show.
Avatar 2:14pm worldsworstrecords:

Indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Rich in Washington:

It DID have that English, early Mute-ish sound. You are spot on. For a split second, I thought it was Gerry and the Holograms.
Avatar 2:17pm worldsworstrecords:

haha! Gerry ATH are coming up in a future show. Andy Partridge of XTC suggested I play it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Rich in Washington:

Then you must! You have no choice!
Avatar 2:19pm Mr Fab:

That was great! Gotta add Donna Kramer to the list of proto-punk pioneers. Velvets, Stooges, Dolls, Donna Kramer ...
Avatar 2:20pm Mr Fab:

Yeesh, i actually had this song in my head a week or 2 ago as Li'l Fab was watching a Munsters marathon (that's my girl!).
Avatar 2:20pm worldsworstrecords:

I love that Donna Kramer disc... very hard to find but well worth seeking out
Avatar 2:27pm Mr Fab:

I have some Tammy Faye records found in charity shops. But never actually LISTENED to them! It's all about those ghastly covers...
Avatar 2:28pm worldsworstrecords:

She was awful... so histrionic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Rich in Washington:

Tammy. Lots of people get her mixed up with Jan Crouch here in the US. Like Tammy, Crouch was known for copious amounts of face makeup and crazy hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

Oh my god! This is so irritaining! Absolutely perfectly putrific!
Avatar 2:30pm worldsworstrecords:

did Jan Crouch sing? Should I check her out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

I think I find the Sour Cream stuff so appealing because the fake Tijuana Brass thing was everywhere during my childhood.
Avatar 2:31pm Mr Fab:

Speaking of bad xian records, I found of copy of that burnt-up-face guy's record a few months ago at a thrift. Almost as scary as a televangelist wife.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33pm Rich in Washington:

I don't know if she sang as much as she gave these over-the-top monologues. She was batshit crazy. I used to watch PTL shows and she was very obviously drunk or on drugs. On subsequent episodes,they'd sort of shuffle her to the back of the crowd. Sadly, she's now with Tammy Faye. In hell, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Rich in Washington:

That's Merrill Womach. I will probably play some of his stuff on future shows. His records are really easy to find where I live, since his business was in the Pacific Northwest.
Avatar 2:35pm worldsworstrecords:

That stuff isn't easy to find over here in the UK
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Rich in Washington:

He and Little Marcy are both from the PNW. It's pretty easy to find Marcy records. My friend Toby interviewed her years ago and I'm trying to get the tape from him so I can digitize it and restore it. He transcribed it and it ran in Cool and Strange Music many, many years ago.
Avatar 2:37pm worldsworstrecords:

god, I love Little Marcy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Rich in Washington:

I should grab them when I find them. I stopped because I have many of them. Marcy records are somewhat amusing, but with the exception of one Womach record, the recordings are relatively normal, trivial, even. It's the covers that are really, shall we say, stunning.
Avatar 2:38pm worldsworstrecords:

Marcy Tigne'rs first 45, on Angelus records, features her singing like Little Marcy but without the doll credited
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Otis Fodder:

I remember that article well, still have the C&SM issue here. When I lived in Seattle, I had a good 20 Little Marcy albums, kept finding them in thrifts. Where I also found her Trombone LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Rich in Washington:

The Merrill record that's kind of interesting, sonically speaking, is the one Merrill in Quartet, where he's singing with himself. It's really hokey. He doesn't sing any songs explicitly about being on fire or anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Rich in Washington:

I wish I had that issue. They're going for a song, now.
Avatar 2:40pm Mr Fab:

There were that many Little Marcy records?! I've seen a couple lately but didn't buy 'em. They kind of creep me out, heh heh...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm Otis Fodder:

Still have my collection of all issues from when working with Dana on the mag (and the radio show). I still refer back to the mag from time to time for research, amazing publication.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Rich in Washington:

Tons and tons. Her discography is somewhat muddled due to people entering her records under variations on her name on Discogs but perhaps the anoraks have sorted it out now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Otis Fodder:

I believe, at least I remember, there being close to 30 Marcy LPs on Word, Singcord, etc.
Avatar 2:42pm worldsworstrecords:

I've got what I believe is her only UK album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Otis Fodder:

I purged all my Marcy LPs (and the 4 Jim & Tammy records with Susie & Allie) years ago. They were all left in Seattle when I moved in 2004.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Otis Fodder:

The only Tigner LP I keep on the shelf is Trombone. It's lovely.
Avatar 2:44pm Mr Fab:

"He doesn't sing any songs explicitly about being on fire or anything." So Merrill Womach never covered "I'm On Fire"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Rich in Washington:

Oh. Purges are painful. I purged a bunch of Marcy and other crazy xtain records about ten years ago and really miss some of them. It's like phantom record syndrom. I go to look for something and realize I'd gotten rid of it during my last fit of insanity purge instinct. Never again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Otis Fodder:

Ha, he should of! I used to find those as well, like Rich said, the pacific northwest is riddled with Merrill in thrifts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Rich in Washington:

Merrill ran a service which made music for the funeral industry. It still exists.
Avatar 2:46pm worldsworstrecords:

I've had the same issue Rich.. desperately looking for discs I got shot of years ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Rich in Washington:

I stupidly passed on the Marcy Tigner album a year or so ago because it was completely split and held together with masking tape and when I went back after I came to my senses, it was gone.
Avatar 2:48pm Mr Fab:

Merrill could have done a concept album, stuff like "Burnin Love," "Feelin Hot Hot Hot," "Light my Fire." All right, I'll stop now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Otis Fodder:

I moved so many times and each time purged to what could fit in the vehicle at the time. Nobody wanted my Marcy collection in Seattle in 2004. I ended up donating them to Goodwill so someone else could get lucky or... go crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Rich in Washington:

This show really lives up to its title, Darryl! Week after week - and I mean that in the best possible way!
Avatar 2:51pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers Rich... that means a lot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Otis Fodder:

Totally agree. Fills the WFMU gap of where Incorrect Music left off.
Avatar 2:51pm worldsworstrecords:

Thanks Otis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Otis Fodder:

...with a dash of Dr Demento/Kenny E...
Avatar 2:52pm worldsworstrecords:

Very much so, both of those were huge influences
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Otis Fodder:

Mutual Admiration Society, here, we have.
Avatar 2:55pm worldsworstrecords:

Dr D interviewed me a few years ago, around the time my Florence Foster Jenkins book came out, He was so kind, and he's plugged the WWR blog a few times too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Rich in Washington:

I friend requested Barrett Hansen a few days ago. I'm not holding my breath, but Weird Al follows me on Instagram, so who knows?
Avatar 2:57pm Mr Fab:

We will have much more going on Wednesdays here at Jungle Room soon. Two, count 'em TWO big shows coming soon to a Hump Day near you.

The next live shows: the big freaky Friday blowout, starting at 1 pm, EST.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Otis Fodder:

Grand version by Moon!!
Avatar 2:57pm worldsworstrecords:

he probably will, but his FB page is now being run by someone else. He's a sweetheart, but his wife died earlier this year and he's taken a bit of a back seat on social media since then
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Darryl! I love your show!
Avatar 2:58pm worldsworstrecords:

that's great news, Mr F!
Avatar 2:58pm Mr Fab:

Another wonderfully awful show, Darryl, much thanks.
Avatar 2:58pm worldsworstrecords:

Thanks for your company again people!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Rich in Washington:

Oh. I didn't know that. That's sad! I hope he comes to Portland in January for his yearly lecture gig at Reed College.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Otis Fodder:

Super show D!
Avatar 2:59pm worldsworstrecords:

You're welcome... doing this is an absolute pleasure
Avatar 2:59pm Mr Fab:

despite what the schedule says, the new shows aren't happenin yet. But the stream rolls on...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Rich in Washington:

Love that montage!
Avatar 3:00pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers everybody!
Avatar 3:02pm worldsworstrecords:

what is this playing now? The pop-up player says Spike Jones, but it ain't!
