Bible Punching Heavyweight Evangelistic Boxing Kangaroo

I'm a longtime fan of the Rutles, a.k.a. "The Prefab Four." Since we're coming up on the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love, why not celebrate with the best cut from their neglected Tragical History Tour album?

I'm glad to see that my old hometown, Austin, has given birth to a Rutles tribute band, Ouch! For live clips, go here.

Piggy in the Middle! Whooo!

There's a backwards line at 1:47. When I had the Rutles album on LP, I spun it backwards to hear the hidden message:

"This little piggy went to ma-a-arket...."

I happen to be the bass player in OUCH!, thanks for the mention.
