U-Stink-But-I-♥-U


Billy and the Boingers
"U-Stink-But-I-♥-U" b/w "I'm A Boinger"
1987

I ripped this from the original flexi last week, and then coincidentally came across a reference to it on one of my favorite blogs, Beyond Failure. As such, I decided to go ahead and throw it up here. This flexi came inside the 1987 Bloom County collection Billy and the Boingers: Bootleg. Billy and the Boingers (née Deathtöngue, obviously a better name) featured "Wild" Bill Catt (aka Bill the Cat) on vocals and lead tongue, Opus Croakus on tuba, Hodge-Podge on drums, and Steve Dallas on guitar and vocals. In actuality, side a here is by Mucky Pup, while side b is by some band called The Harry Pitts band. Side A is the better track. Anyway, this is a funny little record from a comic that, in my mind, is tied for the #1 comic strip of all time slot with Calvin and Hobbes. Both are untouchable.
