Archie’s Rock ‘n’ Rollers had released “Sugar, Sugar” as a be-bop record…

Now I can’t help but picture Jughead singing “Scatman.”

What kind of rock band has a guy on clarinet?

What kind of rock band has a guy on clarinet?

the only kind worth listening to

I know Reggie’s an obnoxious jerk ‘n’ all…
But, why is he still playing the drums?

Reggie is FREAKING ME OUT on that cover. Look at that manic gleam. He’s either about to stab Jughead through the eye with a drumstick or is in the process of releasing the world’s most toxic fart.

>>What kind of rock band has a guy on clarinet?

Dunno … but *saxophones* rock. See (or rather, hear) X-Ray Spex’s “Oh Bondage, Up Yours,” one of the greatest slabs of vinyl ever released.

And I say that as someone who tends to hate horns. (The Saints’ 2nd LP, “Eternally Yours,” is an obvious exception, as is the entire, tragically small oeuvre of The Redskins, the greatest Marxist skinhead soul band ever.)

RE: Clarinets in rock bands

Archie Andrews is a good Jewish boy, so he plays the clarinet. Oy.

Been there, done that, got the original cast album…

Funny stuff!!

This cover reminds me of that old kids in the Hall sketch

Reggie is the John Bonham of comic book characters.

Ooh, cool. I just added them to my wants on Musicboomerang.com . For some reason Marxist bands are often surprisingly good (the Housemartins, Consolidated).
