MP3 download: The Fugs "Nothing"
WFMU volunteer extraordinnaire Jared shares this story with us:
As my own high school prom approaches, I recall what my dad passed along to me about his senior prom in suburban Long Island in 1967. At his prom, along with the usual assortment of non alcoholic refreshments, dresses, tuxes, corsages, and dance music provided by a local band, there was an additional attraction. After the last slow dance, a special guest performer -- The Fugs took the stage and rocked the gymnasium for the graduating class of 1967.
Take a listen to a few of these Fugs tunes captured from the WFMU archives, and imagine how quickly the carnation boutonnieres wilted on that fateful night...
