BONGOS, BASS AND BOB (Buy CDs by this artist)
Never Mind the Sex Pistols, Here's Bongos, Bass and Bob! (What on Earth Were They Thinking?) (50 Skidillion Watts) 1988

Sixteen terribly amusing songs about oral hygiene, used duds ("Clothes of the Dead"), rent-control romance, Thorazine and girls with guns, all done to a golden-brown turn by magician-comedian-label-proprietor Penn Jillette (Bass), Dean J. Seal (Bongos) and Rob "Running" Elk (guitar), with Kramer kind of at the kontrols. Loose'n'lively in a hip, know-it-all, post-frat singalong sort of way.

[Richard Gehr]
