SARCASTIC SLACKER GARAGE ROCK WITH SELF-CONSCIOUSLY WINSOME LYRICS
The Driving Stupid’s previously unreleased album plays like a garage group providing the soundtrack for a Z-grade horror-science fiction film.
In the summer of 1966, The Driving Stupid drove. Traveling from New Jersey-by way of Albuquerque-to Hollywood. The band, with little-to-no experience, decided they were going to find fame and fortune by taking the musical world by storm!
Improbably, they were able to record a handful of demos, hook up with a major label and record an entire album of outlandish music. In addition to the highly regarded single "Horror Asparagus Stories” b/w "The Reality Of (Air) Fried Borsk,” The Stupid penned songs about alien invaders, vengeful water, and tortured mailmen. Driving determination and an admitted touch of naivety led to the band's record deal. Poor singles sales and little promotion led to the album remaining unreleased for more than 35 years.
You can't kill Stupid!
