The Shaggs

I love this record, one of the weirdest things to happen in western music.

Formed in 1968 by three sisters, forced by their father to make a record after never playing instruments and hardly hearing music, the idea came to the sisters mother while visiting a palm reader. how good is the song title "Who are parents?" fuck! 
Philosophy of the World truly walks the line between one of the best and worst records in history.

The Shaggs are now seen as a groundbreaking Outsider Music group, receiving praise from mainstream artists such as Kurt Cobain and also from Frank Zappa after he called the Shaggs "better than the Beatles"

Happy Halloween
