Townhouse Ghetto

Townhouse Ghetto


Set the wayback machine for several housing booms ago and you have the Osmium ode to prefab living. We were building this up in the studio, adding synth horns et al. and couldn't quite suss out what it was supposed to sound like. We tried several vocal styles and I believe Mr. Sookman got the idea for the speak-sing thing. Voila! Instant Zappa. Quickly to become a group favorite.
The DJ at the beginning is a lady by the name of Kathryn Lauren from WHFS-FM in Baltimore/Washington. It got airplay! Now give me my check.

Al: Vox, Keys
John: Guitar
Dave: Drums, Bass

Yeah I gotta feed in the Osmium videos to YouTube from the Washington DC area cable TV fave "Washingtunes" circa 1992. Featuring Townhouse Ghetto, President's Song, Skateboard Phreak and Wood, Steel and Flesh.

The problem is the video for Skateboard Phreak uses the footage from the screener tape, that is copyrighted by New Horizons Video... So we could all get SUED for posting it to YouTube.

First, shoot all the lawyers.
