The Gerogerigegege

The Gerogerigegege sounds like it would be a great band to bring the entire family to see. From the Wikipedia article about them:

The group is best known for their 1990 album Tokyo Anal Dynamite. This album consists of 75 songs, which serve as a fusion of the Ramones' punk jams (replete with Juntaro yelling "1 2 3 4!!" over and over) and John Zorn's frantic Naked City project.
Over the years, The Gerogerigegege has included many members, the most notable and consistent other than Yamanouchi being Gero 30 (also known as Gero 56, real name Tetsuya Endoh), an exhibitionist known to masturbate onstage during live performances. Masturbation is called "senzuri" (千擦り; lit. "a thousand rubs") in Japan and it has become the group's trademark...
The Gerogerigegege is known for their releasing extremely limited edition records such as 1989's 昭和 (Shōwa), which bookended a recording of people having sex with "Kimi ga Yo", the Japanese national anthem, and the Night EP, which features what seems to be a recording of a man defecating into a toilet after the usual "1 2 3 4!!" count... There are also some non-musical conceptual releases, including This Is Shaking Box Music part 2, which is a destroyed cassette copy of the Mother Fellatio EP. Similar inane concepts are rampant throughout the band's catalogue, and often, the more ridiculous the theme or packaging of a release is, the more sought after it is by collectors. Copies of some Gerogerigegege records go for hundreds of dollars.

The name itself is a combination of the "Japanese words for 'vomit' (gero) and 'diarrhea' (geri) with what is supposedly the sound of these actions occurring simultaneously (gegege)."

Swell! I just learned some new Japanese words.

And to think I've been actively engaging in copyright infringement since puberty. Oh well.

And I thought my collection of Dead Milkmen albums was weird.

Sometimes the therapy sessions are just too long apart. I have trouble waiting even five minutes sometimes. 😉
