1.The late ’60s incarnation: A ‘progressive’ outfit, Art later evolved into Spooky Tooth in October 1967 with the addition of Gary Wright. Their finest moment was What’s That Sound, which was a rehash of Buffalo Springfield’s superb For What It’s Worth. It’s now quite hard to obtain but was included on Island’s You Can All Join In compilation.
Their album is adventurous and quite unique British psychedelic rock. It’s quite primitive in places, but utilises a wide range of instruments with plenty of sound effects and variety, although side two is a bit nondescript. Guy Stevens handled the production duties. It’s well worth a spin.
2.The early ’80s incarnation was a “snide anti-new wave new wave band” led by provocateur Mykel Board. Their best known song was “Ugly People with Fancy Hairdos,” which served as a searing indictment of pretty much everyone. Try to listen to it and refrain yourself from yelling, “Oh SNAP!” or, “BURN!” You can’t. You can’t.
