Hello People!

So what's more scary than pirates? How about Mimes? Or '60s San Francisco Rock Bands? How about some guys that were BOTH? Ladies and gentlemen, a band that couldn't get a hit no matter how much Todd Rundgren tried to help... THE HELLO PEOPLE!!!

Totally self-indulgent FFP, just because one of my personal earworms is a song they released thirty years ago, titled Future Shock.

"Leaving earth is such a trip,
Hold on tight, don't lose your grip..."

I am such a sick puppy.

"Paisley Teddy Bear?"

I'm having a flashback, and not a good one.

madamj! Of all the MeFites to bring up Dead Mimes, I didn't expect it to be you!

FYI: Hello People predated KISS by about 5 years, and were high-profile enough for them to have possibly "inspired" Gene Simmons and the boys... just another thing to be held against them.
