#18: THE SHAGGS
Show Notes

Cal takes the lead for the first time as we explain the astonishing story of The Shaggs; the bizarre cult-like family that produced the absolute strangest rock album ever made. Along the way we take attempt to take a crack at a difficult question: what makes music "good" or "bad" in the first place? How did a trio of teenagers with no musical knowledge produce something that artists like Frank Zappa and Kurt Cobain regarded as a classic? How is it possible to appreciate something that, to 99% of human ears, sounds like complete dogshit?

You may not know who The Shaggs are, but the moment you hear them you'll never be able to forget it!
