Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

The True Candidate Of The People

Hey, kids: wanna see a smoking monkey? 1:40 in to the video. Try pulling that bullshit nowadays. The innertubes would straight up come to your house and murder you, and then take pictures of your body and put Crying Jordan on it.

(Alice Cooper–the band not the guy, but also the guy–doesn’t get enough love. The songs were a lot smarter than they let on, and the guitarists were crunchy and ragged, and Bob Ezrin was the producer for the first bunch of records.)


  1. When I was young, if, when visiting somewhere, you found an Alice Cooper record in the collection, the best thing to do was get out quick. If you found two, forget the doors, you should exit through the windows.

  2. Mr. Jiggs the smoking monkey is prominently featured during the setbreak of the Roosevelt Stadium ’76 show that’s on YT. It’s Peak Seventies stuff.

    Why do I own one Alice Cooper record (“From The Inside” – the rehab LP)? Because of the crunchy guitars: Alice hired Dick Wagner and Steve Lukather, and worked up the lyrics with Bernie Taupin (so Dee Murray and Davey Johnstone laid some tracks). There are only three good songs on it, but they’re GOOD.
