The unfettered, unfiltered cool of the Fleshtones

Here’s an America that’s nearly impossible to imagine: Andy Warhol has a TV show on MTV. On the show is a garage revival band called the Fleshtones. They play a sinewy, melodic dirge and their young, statuesque singer Peter Zaremba flips his long bangs across his forehead as he taps a tambourine. Then, in the foreground of your not-so-flat TV set, appears a pre-Gandalf, pre-Magneto, but no less magnetic Sir Ian McKellan. He starts reciting a Shakespearian sonnet. No, I’m not having a bad trip. Here’s the proof, just one click away in YouTube land.

Hard to believe, right? MTV, and not a pregnant teenager in sight.

The Lawn Sausages

The legendary Lawn Sausages are re-forming – but definitely not reforming – to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of their debut CD, Kick Out the Hams.

Court jesters of the Nippertown music scene in the mid to late 1990s, the Lawn Sausages were well known for their incendiary live shows which combined outrageous costumes, hysterically funny R-rated lyrics and fearless, bombastic showmanship.
