So you want to be in a Rock ‘n Roll Band? Toulouse No-Neck and Badfinger

Badfinger on Shock Theater

On par with opening for a puppet show like Spinal Tap did, Badfinger played a Milwaukee Monster Movie show called “Shock Theater”. Hosted by a guy calling himself Toulouse No-Neck.

Badfinger by the early 80s was stuck in Milwaukee through some shady dealings and promised return to glory and found themselves on the b-movie Saturday afternoon show. Read the whole crazy story here.

These are the performances complete with Toulouse No-Neck helping out and dancing-girls. I remember seeing this live and thinking what the hell is happening.
