Everything you know about music is WRONG,
This review is from: Philosophy Of The World (Audio CD)
Almost all modern music leaves the listener with absolutely no feelings whatsoever. Not so of The Shaggs. You do not so much listen to them as endure their total assault upon the concepts of melody, harmony, rhythm, and logic. Your first play-through will be a cathartic experience of sorts - disbelief turns into incredulity, incredulity mutates into speechlessness, speechlessness transforms into a deeply-rooted hatred of the life force within you, and before you know it your lower intestine is snaking up through your neck trying to strangle you. This is the music your dogs would make if they could strum guitars and speak English. And this is the beauty of The Shaggs - they are so mind-bendingly, death-defyingly horrible in every conceivable way that they grab your viscera, shove them through a turbocharged garbage disposal, and put them back inside of you in random order. Buy this CD (or rather inflict it upon yourself) and marvel at the amazing variations found within the human species. Besides, you have probably done something unspeakably evil in your life - this will be your punishment. You DESERVE this.

Indeed, the logical evolution to this would be to actually introduce the first dog band onto the pop music scene. What could be more logical? The innocent creative abandon expressed by the Shaggs' eschewing the premeditation of conventional musicianship cries out for a band of canines bravely forging new vistas of popular musicality. There's no doubt the public has been demanding this level of creativity for quite sometime that chimps have been unable to deliver. It's long overdue.
