On sale at U.S. pop-record counters last week was a ten-inch number with an attached red sticker of warning: "The enclosed record is HORRIBLE." The label was an understatement. The tunes (Fish and There's a New Sound) offer some of the most nightmarish vocals of modern times to the accompaniment of an asthmatic calliope. Sample lyric:
There's a new sound; it's deep down in the ground,
And everyone who listens to it squirms
Because this new sound, so deep down in the ground,
Is the sound that's made by worms.
The perpetrators are two experienced Tin Pan...
