ONE FELL SWOOP - Smoking Mom's Horrible Thin Twigs

From 10/17/1991 ,20 years ago,today! The title is taken from what Chipmonk told us ,about not being able to afford cigarettes. He had gotten into a mess by stealing his mom's car for a drug-fueled joyride,and wrecking it,and he was basically paying off his debt to his mom. The album of tunes here ,reflect that downtrodden blues feeling ,of being without the basic necessities.A song title also spells out more of Chipmonk's frailties and foibles ,"Oh The Hair,I Cut All My Hair Off (And Lost My Wallet!)". There is also a Sly & The Family Stone cover song ,"Thank You Falletinme Be Mice Elf ,Again" , which Chipmonk sings and plays in the college-rock stylee. A sad day in the history of OFS. p.s. - Kunga Sludge only got 3 downloads! What's up? It's a good one! Sid Caesar was a smoker!
