The only song you need for Halloween: Skeletons by Inflatable Boy Clams. Play it over and over!

Wait, you want to hear it backwards? Snoteleks by Inflatable Boy Clams.

From their 1981 EP, called... Inflatable Boy Clams, which also contained


and maybe scariest of all -
I'm Sorry

Who were the Inflatable Boy Clams?

Time for some stories.

And now let's listen once more to SKELETONS!

I wan't sure I liked this at first, but after listening to it thirty seven more times, I'm starting to think that maybe it's not so bad...

There's nothing about this I don't love.

As soon the keyboard started, I knew I had heard this many times over the years on WFMU. A search on their playlist database confirmed that this band is a big fave there. Love this song!

At WPRB we could never figure out the correct speed for I'm Sorry.

Reminds me, for obvious reasons, of There Goes Concorde.

And of a hundred late-night teenage encounters with John Peel.

Yes, I too heard this the first time on WFMU a couple of years ago. And yes, I really do play it over and over. I SMILE FOR YOOUUUUU!
