‘Christmas at K-Mart’ by Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band!
Btw, folks, the band’s ultra-rare and legendary LP, “Left for Dead,” recorded in 1979 but not released on vinyl until 1987, was reissued this month on CD with two previously unreleased tracks, “The Shah is Gone,” and “Space Ship Boogie.” This is a marvelous and preposterous album, a spontaneous blues jam that was unwritten, unrehearsed and recorded in one take over a course of a night. The band’s two founding members, Root Boy Slim (Foster MacKenzie III) and Bob Greenlee, who met as frat brothers at Yale, are no longer with us. (But their DKE cohort, George W. Bush, who banned them from the frat house for life, is). You can buy it here. Below is a photo of my LP cover.
