See also: The Incredible String Band's "The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter," Jethro Tull's "This Was," The Bonzo Dog Band's "The Doughnut in Grannie's Greenhouse." Extending beyond covers, the promo video for The Rattles' "The Witch" pretty much exemplifies the aesthetic.

@P-90...not sure if you replied to my question about your name referring to guitar pickups last night, but regardless...I went down a wormhole on the internet reading all about good P-90 options.

oh my, the lobster record making another appearance? It’s a bona fide hit! A HIT, I tell you! Glad it made its way on the air...

Miick Avory (drummer of The Kinks) is always singing 1 song in The Kast Off Kinks: Dedicated follower of fashion. And then he often says he wants to do the lobster song.
Avatar 5:37pm djsheilab:

JtotheK—You have vastly improved the lives of all who come into contact with this treasure of a record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm howard in nyc:

Trying to stay off commenting on the internet today, and just enjoy Sheila and special guest Joe. Then she went and played Ann Peebles. Love this cut, and consider this other one a companion piece - her cover of Albert King's 'Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody's Home.
