I used to see this one in my local record store when I was in high school. Despite it being marked,
For fans of The Residents, (I fit the bill), I never bought it. Luckily, when I joined the radio station at my university, they had a copy. This cheery little ditty was their
hit. Meaning, I played it a bunch, and some other people did, too.
The Tom and Marty Band were a duo (surprise!) from Richmond, VA. Marty was Marty McCavitt, who'd previously been in the improv quartet Idio Savant, who released a pretty cool album on the same label in 1979, Shakers in a Tantrum Landscape; I did not know this at the time, however, so the point is moot. He was later the leader of the instrumental combo Famous Actors from Out of Town, who released a killer cassette album, FA3574, in the mid/late 1980s. Tom (Campagnoli), unfortunately, I know nothing else about. Please, find it in your heart to forgive me. If it helps, I do plan on featuring both Idio Savant and FAfooT on here at some point.
