Bad records that are good, even brilliant


Recommended Posts

I can't remember the exact tale, and probably no one in the band tells the truth about it anyway, but The Cure were signed to German label 'Hansa' in the 70s. The label wanted to promote disco and tried to steer the band in that direction, also the band were contractually obliged to record another single so they recorded this little nonsensical gem as two fingers up to the record company, so the story goes. 

Who says Robert Smith doesn't have a sense of humour. 

I actually really like it.

Star Trekkin has to be my fave and Nellie the Elephant, forget the band.  

 

Must admit I have a big soft spot for Star Trekkin. The Bones McCoy voice is spot on, always makes me laugh.

Nellie the Elephant: The Toy Dolls (Sunderland-based band I think)

There’s a whole album full on “Benny Hill Sings?”

Deliberately so and one of my favourite albums of all time. 
And who doesn’t like Ernie?

I remember this. A young teenagers dream watching this video and trying to freeze frame it when you thought you were seeing her nips!

Inspired by the discussion on the thread about hilariously bad songs, can I invite you all to submit your nominations? Here's mine:

The Flying Lizards - Money - YouTube

I actually liked this at the time. It was a finger in the air to the cheesy pop that was all the rage at the time.
