Longmont Potion Castle - 5 CD (Reptillian)

Prank phone calls from the John Trubee school of mildly abusive surrealism, though Mr. Longmont P. Castle substitutes an obsession with squid for Trubee’s raccoons. A highlight is the brief one-sided conversation titled “Chimp Giraffe Loop,” in which an unflappable lady at the Denver Sears tries to suggest the best possible sheet for wrapping a chimp. If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to get an Orange Julius employee to threaten to beat you with a blender (ordering a “Chowder Julius”), this is the disc for you.
