Temple City Kazoo Orchestra: Some Kazoos

From 1978, the very first EP from Rhino Records. Big. Bold. Brassy. Epic. Epochal. A pop culture cyclone. A demarcation point for classical music. The record that redefined New Wave. Everyone who bought this record may not have formed a band, but they bought this record. A game-changer in the history of motion pictures. The 800-pound gorilla in the basement of every indie-pop songwriter’s mind. One hell of a nice guy, a real mensch, my best and greatest friend. Makers of the finest steak I’ve ever tasted. They lived the dream. They tasted the big rock candy sandwich. They ate the purple pea. They ingested the microdot of fame. We looked on the breadth of their empire and wept. We listened to their message of love – and bought a small colored plastic tube with two sheets of wax paper inside.
