Alright, I have to admit I got drawn in by the name, but when the short description name-dropped Pallbearer, my interest went to "piqued".

What Dusty said. 

Finishing up the Xmas music here with Spike Jones. Like Nick Cave, if he had a much higher voice and his twisted-ness went exactly in the opposite direction. Killer tracks like...

 "a textbook-perfect album of post-Beatles, keyboard-centered English art rock that strikes the shrewdest possible balance between quasi-symphonic classicism and rock & roll" - Stephen Holden

^^^ Basically 3 sisters (and later a 4th IIRC) from NH who's dad wanted some kind of stardom so forced them to play and managed them.....

They win one of the best-named songs (early on....these days it's a free-for-all) with "My Pal Foot Foot"

EDIT: holy shit!  I knew they were cult-ish, but a musical, tribute bands, and more?  Yikes!

The Shaggs led to Texas, which somehow led to Rock & Rule... thanks, YouTube(?). I'm enjoying the post-punk/post-rock/post-disco post-apocalypse:

 

Bonus: the guy who put the Rock & Rule soundtrack together has been busy. Here is his reconstruction of Michael Jackson's Starlight album (from the Thriller demo tapes – no Thriller songs here):

The way it was explained to me was that he felt it was ordained...

Gotcha....yeah, I had read that the father's mother had some predictions that came true about her son's life, and one of them was that her grandkids would sing/be in a band.  So the father forced them to practice constantly & play, and was quite restrictive in allowing them to do much else for much of their time.

Yeah, that’s what I heard.  

Are you sure they practiced?  Or did they master the fine art of appearing to practice, as many children do?  ?
