I’ve just come across this band via the Something Awful forums called The Shaggs. They were a 1960s pop group. From Wikipedia:
When the girls’ father, Austin Wiggin, Jr., was young, his mother made three predictions: he would marry a strawberry blonde; he would have two sons she would not live to see; and his daughters would form a famous musical group. After the first two came true, Austin set out to make the third happen.
Surely a band formed on the basis of a grandmother’s ramblings is destined for musical glory!
Enjoy the brilliance – nay, the GENIUS – of The Shaggs, and their classic tune, My Pal Foot Foot
Kurt Cobain was a fan. Need I say more?
