Advance warning: the second track on today's show is NSFW and more than a little bit racist

Here we go!
Avatar 2:00pm Mr Fab:

Hey Darryl, and Worst-oids.
That clip of the Seeds was recorded off the youtubes - their appearance on
"The Mothers-in-Law" sit-com.
Avatar 2:00pm Martinibomb:

Avatar 2:00pm worldsworstrecords:

It was ace!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi everyone. I see the big picture now! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Jan Turkenburg:

Yes, Mr. Fab that recording of The Seeds caught me by surprise in that context!
Avatar 2:03pm worldsworstrecords:

Hey Jan, hey Mr F!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man.
Avatar 2:04pm Mr Fab:

Yes, it was rather "gassy," wasn't it?
Avatar 2:04pm worldsworstrecords:

I know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Rich in Washington:

1975, too.
Avatar 2:05pm Martinibomb:

I've got a bunch of those Lil Sambo books
  2:05pm Eli Neman:

Fun Fact: The Phil Harris song is a cover of Tex Williams song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Rich in Washington:

I can't help think of those recurring Minstrel Show characters in Little Britain.
Avatar 2:05pm worldsworstrecords:

I'm guessing at the date, it might be a couple of years earlier
Avatar 2:06pm worldsworstrecords:

Hi Eli!
  2:06pm Eli Neman:

Also the song reminds me of Sambo's restaurant
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Rich in Washington:

I remember being taken to Sambo's restaurant by my grandparents as a very small child.
Avatar 2:07pm Martinibomb:

@Rich there was that Lil Sambos in Lincoln city up until about 10 years ago
Avatar 2:08pm Martinibomb:

It's still there pretty much the same thing.. they rebranded to something else tho
Avatar 2:08pm Mr Fab:

Li'L Sambo, and the restaurant chain that it inspired was actually an Indian character. Can't speak for that song tho
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Rich in Washington:

The one my grandparents took me to was still called Lil Black Sambo's for many years. It was in Lincoln City Oregon and I think they defiantly held onto the name as long as they could.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Jan Turkenburg:

Favorited this one immediately!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Jan Turkenburg:

Don't have this one yet in my ER-collection.
Avatar 2:10pm worldsworstrecords:

Hurrah! It's the bongos
Avatar 2:10pm Martinibomb:

oooh that Echo! is so horrible
Avatar 2:11pm worldsworstrecords:

It's a little over the top, isn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Jan Turkenburg:

bongo's and lot's of echo! absolutely fabulous!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Jan Turkenburg:

Avatar 2:11pm Martinibomb:

and i mean horrible as in fantastic lol
Avatar 2:12pm worldsworstrecords:

I bought that Gershwin with Bongos album somebody mentioned here a few weeks ago. It's ace!
  2:12pm Eli Neman:

Also that Phil Harris song was released as a single before it was put on that album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Jan Turkenburg:

people people people people
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Rich in Washington:

Yes. I think we went there on our long trip from my house to theirs. I don't remember much about it other than they gave little prizes to kids who ate there, their coloring placemats, etc.
But you are right - the character was a sort of Indian/South Asian stereotype. Still rather offensive and demeaning, though. I am sure many white folks thought of South Asians and Africans as one and the same as far as they were concerned, hence the chain's offensive name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm Rich in Washington:

That Kaplan Brothers was nuts.
Avatar 2:13pm Mr Fab:

Eli, I thought you must have meant "Tex Ritter," but no, you're right, it was a Tex Williams. I thought that was a baseball player? I'm so confused...
Avatar 2:15pm worldsworstrecords:

This is sooo over the top
  2:15pm Eli Neman:

Wow, Sammy Davis Junior on Motown label...that is weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Rich in Washington:

Dig it, baby!
Avatar 2:15pm worldsworstrecords:

Just a one off album Eli, in 1970
  2:15pm Eli Neman:

Also that is a cover
Avatar 2:16pm worldsworstrecords:

Old blue eyes and old one eye must have fallen out
Avatar 2:16pm worldsworstrecords:

The sleeve of the album? Something else, isn't it. Turn it over!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Jan Turkenburg:

what a pity Georgy isn't in yet!
Avatar 2:17pm Martinibomb:

I'm still consistently surprised to see the rat pack at the grocery market almost every time. Because People magazine keeps putting out *rat pack* specials. I can't imagine anyone under 50 is buying those!?
Avatar 2:17pm Mr Fab:

Sambo's Restaurants met the same fate as the diet candy Ayds. Gotta love their ads: "Lose weight with Ayds!"
Avatar 2:18pm Martinibomb:

@Fab for real? Wow! that's up there with that Tiny Tim song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Rich in Washington:

That cover looks inspired by Electric Ladyland.
Avatar 2:18pm worldsworstrecords:

Ahh, the Tiny Tim get-out clause
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Jan Turkenburg:

@ Mr Fab. no kidding!
Avatar 2:19pm worldsworstrecords:

Ayds were big business in the UK in the 70s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Rich in Washington:

Martinibomb - a couple of years ago I spotted this ridiculous posting on Craigslist where someone in Portland was selling these weird life-sized statues of Frank, Dino, and I think Peter Lawford or something. Like this instant Rat Pack. I don't know if he ever sold it. They were ludicrous. I think he'd keep posting and reposting for many months.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Jan Turkenburg:

this is unbelievable...
Avatar 2:21pm worldsworstrecords:

You like, Jan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Rich in Washington:

I'll have to do some digging. I think I still have screenshots of the posting and some of the pictures. It was quite spectacular in its utter creepiness.
Avatar 2:21pm worldsworstrecords:

I should do a Bad Taste special one day
Avatar 2:22pm Martinibomb:

oh man we need those life size rat pack statues for Sheenas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Jan Turkenburg:

this is an extreme example of bad taste indeed...
  2:22pm Eli Neman:

There was a song about this??? Wow, that is awful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Rich in Washington:

worldsworstrecords: I can't imagine how wonderfully nuts that's be!
Avatar 2:23pm worldsworstrecords:

It probably works better in their native tongue
Avatar 2:23pm Martinibomb:

I feel like I need to do a gigantic painting someday of the *imagined* Sheena's Jungle Room studios hahah I think we should design it even it's only in our imagination
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Rich in Washington:

Wow. Just wow.
Avatar 2:23pm worldsworstrecords:

I said they were Spanish in my intro, but they're Italian
Avatar 2:23pm Martinibomb:

So life sized rat pack statues are going into the studio...
Avatar 2:25pm Mr Fab:

That "Auscwitz" song has me feeling soiled!
Avatar 2:25pm worldsworstrecords:

This probably only works if you're British or have an understanding of the shipping forecast
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Rich in Washington:

It's mindboggling, innit, Mr. Fab? Like someone actually thought 'this is the song! This will move them!'
Avatar 2:27pm worldsworstrecords:

I aim to please!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Rich in Washington:

Jerry Solomon is certifiably nuts.
Avatar 2:27pm worldsworstrecords:

Love him
  2:29pm Eli Neman:

The Jerry Solomon guy reminds me of Wild Man Fischer, only that guy is funny.
Avatar 2:29pm Mr Fab:

Thanks (?) for heppin me to Jerry Solomon, Darryl. Been meaning to get this collection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

people who are into sampling drum breaks are really missing the boat on ignoring Helen Wiggins.
Avatar 2:30pm worldsworstrecords:

That new double album is exceptional
Avatar 2:30pm worldsworstrecords:

Agreed Rich
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Rich in Washington:

someone really should make a biopic of The Shaggs.
Avatar 2:32pm Mr Fab:

Martinibomb, in the "about me" section of the Sheena's blog, there's my description of an imagined Jungle Room. But feel free to add your own suggestions!
Avatar 2:33pm Mr Fab:

Rich, believe it or not, there was gonna be a Shaggs biopic by, of all people, Tom Cruise. Dont think anything came of it.
  2:33pm Eli Neman:

A singing Surgeon singing about a green superhero...that is so weird
Avatar 2:33pm worldsworstrecords:

Tom Cruise? OM effing G
Avatar 2:34pm worldsworstrecords:

It's an odd one, isn't it Eli?
Avatar 2:35pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh! Oh!
  2:36pm Eli Neman:

Yeah, the only other singing doctor that I know of is Dr Rock (Randy Hazel M.D.) known for I rather have a Bottle in front of me (than a frontal lobotony)
Avatar 2:38pm Martinibomb:

@Fab I think I'm going to illustrate the jungle room it's going on my to do list.. remember in marvel comics how Wally Wood would do like Daredevil and how all his gadgets worked laid out like a blue print.. that's what I'm going for hahah
Avatar 2:39pm Mr Fab:

There was a rapping doctor in the last decade or so, known as the Physician Musician.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Rich in Washington:

i forgot all about that song, Eli. I remember hearing it on Dr. Demento.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Rich in Washington:

I have those LPs by the singing hypnotist. I can't immediately recall his name but he looks hilarious with a big pompadour.
Avatar 2:42pm Mr Fab:

Can't wait, MB!

Yeah, we need a real-life Jungle Room somewhere. Rich can decorate it with giant Rat Pack statues and thrift-store finds. And Otis can donate some of his black-velvet paintings he posts pics of on his playlist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Rich in Washington:

How do you do it, worldsworstrecords? There just is no bottom.
Avatar 2:43pm Mr Fab:

this Jimmy guy did a couple messed-up X covers. Yes, the LA punk band, X.
Avatar 2:43pm worldsworstrecords:

haha... it's a gift Rich. That and decades of collecting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man. I need to share the image of this totally Sheena approved geegaw my sweety found for me on a recent trip.
Avatar 2:43pm Martinibomb:

#foodtalk - okay for lunch today I'm attempting the impossible grilled cheese. First I lay down a thin coat of oil in a cast iron then a layer of cheese. Then place the bread on top of the cheese and put more cheese on top of that slice. Then place another slice of bread on top of that...wait until the whole thing is cooked then pickup the bottom cheesy/bread thing with a spatula. Quickly put down the final layer of cheese in the pan.. then flip the sandwich over and finish cooking until cheese on bottom of pan is all crusty delicious. I'm insane I know.
Avatar 2:44pm worldsworstrecords:

Why do the Americans call that 'grilled cheese' when it's not been under a grill?
Avatar 2:45pm Martinibomb:

in my case my cast iron is actually on a grill? does that count? other wise .. my answer is that americans are retarded hahah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah. I've done cheesy bread type grilled cheese sandwiches like that. I love 'em, especially if it's cheddar and you get it almost to the point of burning. It's like a Cheezit.
Avatar 2:46pm worldsworstrecords:

What we call a grill I believe you call a broiler?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Jan Turkenburg:

@MB, that's the kind of thing I do late in the evening when I suddenly get hungry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Rich in Washington:

There's this balancing point of not unsticking it from the pan too early and not too late.
Avatar 2:47pm Martinibomb:

@Rich/Jan oh man I love that burned cheese flavor it's the best thing ever
Avatar 2:48pm Martinibomb:

I'm gonna spread on some guacamole I made too.. just sounds good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Rich in Washington:

That is a good point, Darryl. I think the stovetop grill like I've seen commonly in the UK is a real rarity here, if we're talking about the same thing. The closest we have on our common range/ovens is the 'broiler' setup inside the oven. We don't have those top-mounted grill things here, really.
Avatar 2:49pm Martinibomb:

thanks for the Phyllis Diller always loved her on Scooby Doo
Avatar 2:49pm worldsworstrecords:

You're welcome MB
Avatar 2:50pm Martinibomb:

@Rich I actually do have a grill on my oven. Opted for that over extra 2 burners hah
Avatar 2:50pm worldsworstrecords:

That's the one Rich
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Rich in Washington:

Diller was also a fixture on The Hollywood Squares, if memory serves. She was also Witchy Poo on Sidd and Marty Kroft's H.R. Puffinstuff.

Before this show is over, just want to let you know that the singing cop is no rapping cop like Kevin Jordan who later became a comedien
