Three Who Would Shimmy-Disc

Almost the weekend, so a quick 3 from the great Shimmy Disc label of the '80s, '90s and maybe beyond... Bongwater was label-founder Kramer's main band, which grew out of Shockabilly's dissolution. They replaced Eugene Chadbourne with Dave Rick on guitar and Ann Magnuson for most vocals. She sang, but also talked a lot... Like pretty much all King Missile, who were influential on the spoken-word performance-art thing that kind of happened in the '90s. And finally, one of my favorites from one of my favorites, Ween's second (and last independent label) album: The Pod.
