Join The Squirrels / Poplust e-mail discussion list
SQUIRRELS 2005 (L to R): MATT FOX, JOEY KLINE, JAMES COOKMAN, ROB
MORGAN, HOLLIS THE BUG, AARON TAYLOR PIC (c) MS/AT2
there is actually an e-mail "discussion list" for fans
of The Squirrels, Poplust Magazine, &/or "comedy music" in general!
This new list was founded by Rob "Capt." Morgan of The Squirrels in cahoots with Ned Raggett, a nice young
Brit (who's actually a Californian) who operates the Sparks "mael-list"- as well as lists pertaining to T.Rex,
Oasis, & Suede! The two "met" when Morgan joined the Sparks list (an event that eventually led to the gang at Fan
Mael, the Sparks Tribute CD, the new "The-Not-So-Bright Side Of The Moon" project, & the eventual resurrection
of the LIVE UNIT- but that's another story altogether). Turns out Ned was a fan of The Squirrels from his days
as a college DJ, & in time a few other Squirrels fans turned up on the Sparks list as well. Anyhooo, the two eventually
decided to fire up a new list in a "what the fugg" kind of manner ("hey, if it doesn't go, we can TURN IT OFF!").
Besides,certain crazy Canadians keep bringing The Squirrels up on the Sparks list, making some people
GRUMPY (just kidding, Larry... sort of)!!! So here we are! And, hey, LET'S TALK!!!!!
So are we! In fact by now, you're probably asking yourself:
an internet list about The Squirrels kind of a RIDICULOUS IDEA?
A: Yes... but in case you hadn't noticed, that's kind of their JOB!!!
But seriously, we plan to be a bit looser than that- topics are to range
from the Squirrels
Group to Poplust magazine & its features & contents, as well as other acts of the much
misunderstood & criminally overlooked "COMEDY MUSIC GENRE". By that we mean
bands & musicians that incorporate humor into their music in large doses... people like
Frank Zappa (aka GOD), The Tubes, Dread Zeppelin, El Vez, The Dickies, Gruppo Sportivo,
Big Daddy, Too Hip For the Room, & on & on... in other words, some of the most kick-ass
(& underated) musicians in the business ("ALL HAIL BUTT-BOY")!!! That, & Poplust... & the
(non-existant) new Squirrels CD. And JT's dog Ella. And how about them Yellow Submarine
Action Figures? (Not to mention first crack at rare Squirrels items, the occasional contest
& /or 'special offers'. But watch out- there is a 'list policy' of sorts, & we WILL intrude if
threads get TOO ugly or out of hand for long (or if people insist on bringing up Weird
freekin' Al all the time..... burf!!!) And ask anybody on the mael-list... Ned can be
MEAN if you push him too far!!!!
