Album: Foxy Shazam, Foxy Shazam (Sire/Warners)
Sunday 17 October 2010
Cincinnati sextet Foxy Shazam are the deranged, inspired rock'n'soul monster led by Eric Nally, a man with the face of D'Artagnan and the bravado of a backyard wrestler.
A story-so-far "debut", FS features their first British single "Oh Lord", a cameo from Justin Hawkins, the doo-wop of "Bye Bye Symphony", and the "Don't Stop Me Now" momentum of "Wannabe Angel" on which Nally yelps, "And all you hipsters say I'm gay/ Well I'm not gay at all!" If you don't love Foxy Shazam, he'll hurt himself.
Is the comedy album making a comeback?comedy
