Perry has really outdone himself with this one. Brings back the Sunday mornings of my childhood, when Butler and I watched "Jubilee!" upside down.

JUBLIEE! JUBLIEE~ you’re invited to this happy jubliee… Channel 2 before cartoons….
It was very early in the a.m., even before claymation Davey and Goliath, I think. Butler and I figured out that if we laid on our back and rolled our heads upside down to watch, their big tall hair looked like beards and their noses looked like pigs and their mouths looked funny too. We didn’t have much programming to choose from in those days, did we?
You just had to bring Jesus into the mix…..you couldn’t leave well enough alone. We had to watch the “Florida Boys” every Sunday morning before church. Maybe that’s where I developed my love for roots rock ‘n roll. Thank you Beth for dredging up all of thes unpleaseant memories.
I especially enjoyed the powder blue tuxedos with frilly collars. Whe we turned the sound down their expressions while singing made us giggle uncontrollably.
Did you notice the Faith Tones went for the powder blue, too?
This may have been an early indication, Butler, that we were doomed to a long future of uncontrollable laughter at bizarre flickerings.
OMG!!! Y’all have to check out Blotto!! They were a fun/party band back in the late ’70s & early ’80s. They did a tune called “We are the Now-Tones” that made fun of Top-40 cover bands, and bands like “The Faith Tones”. They also did “Metalhead”…a paean to hardcore heavy-metal fans. They had a very talented guitarist who worked in bits of every cliche heavy-mental guitar solo you’ve ever heard. The song is about 7-8 minutes long, including the obligatory never-ending ending. The only comparably funny rock satire tune I’ve heard is Dash Riprock’s “Stairway to Freebird”, but I think that one was an unofficial “hidden track” tacked on the end of “(Let’s Go) Smoke Some Pot” (done to the tune of “At the Hop). All fantastically funny!!
