Shake My Fanny, Gonna Be Your Dandy
:: Monda – Boogie Till My Brains Fall Out ::
Dick Monda has one of the more out-there resumes you’ll find. He produced the music for the great 70’s Saturday morning cartoon Groovy Goolies, and enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame with a charting single actually written for that show, Chick-A-Boom, which he performed under the nom-de-plume Daddy Dewdrop (backed by a group of session dudes named…The Torrance Cookers.) In addition to this, he apparently was in a Troma movie about dismembered strippers (natch) called Body Parts. More recently he worked on a Ringo Starr Christmas album. Like I said, out there.
So of course this song is positively goofy. In fact, it’s outright ridiculous, both lyrically and musically. The line about tacos is one of the biggest what the fucks ever. Normally, I like the idea of a song ending in a methamphetamine-fueled hoedown, but here it’s just the exclamation point on how hard this song tried to be weird.
