Get Off the Grass: Edith Massey's Awful Punk Record

Youtube knows me so well. This video showed up in my "recommended for you" homepage :

When I first heard the "Get Off the Grass" single a few years ago, I assumed Edith wrote those lyrics herself, and it turns out she did. They're awful, and the band is equally awful. Enjoy!

I should admit that the B-side is an improvement, a cover of "Big Girls Don't Cry". Someone else must've thought so, because these two songs were flipped for a later 45rpm release.

Actually, I think I'd rather hear Edith Massey's music over anything Divine recorded. There's nothing more dated, or more abrasive, than 80's techno-rave.
