Perhaps they’re a cross between the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and the Rolling Stones or then again, maybe they’re not. Actually, it is very difficult to place a label on these blokes. Very hard indeed. Nonetheless we’ll try…art, music and philosophy with a tremendously off-the-wall following with a British sense of humour in American trousers comes to mind when we think of Snotty Scotty and his Hankies.
Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the 1988 Snotty Scotty & the Hankies LP record on the Doo Dah Record label, the legendary lads will play the album in actual order of the original wax, in its entirety – for the first time EVER. When, you ask?: We’ll tell you – Saturday Night – November 2, 2013 when they feel like it.
According to our inside source, Sierra Madre Sue, the lads will perform at T. Boyle’s Tavern in Pasadena – it was Toes Tavern when/where the record release party took place on 11/13/1988.
Approximately 150 “producers” who contributed $10 each to make the album happen are credited on the back of the album jacket. That list will soon be published and Sierra Madre Sue wants to get as many of them as possible to attend this once in a lifetime event YOU may be one of them and not even know it.
This is a MUST DO for any music fan in Pasadena. Beacon Media will be interviewing some of the band members in the coming weeks and tell you a little more about one of the longest running bands in history ( aside from the Stones, naturally).
