Barnes and Barnes

Rolly-polly fish heads
Are never seen drinking cappuccino
In Italian restaurants,
With Oriental women... yeah!

Barnes & Barnes, fictional twin brothers Art Barnes and Artie Barnes (Bill Mumy and Robert Haimer, respectively), are a "novelty rock" duo based in "Lumania", a fictional mythological civilization (similar to Lemuria or Atlantis).

I was OBSESSED with them as a young teen, they were my Zappa period...

With their casio tone beats and ridiculous lyrics, this is a must for all you fans seeking silly and synthy New Wave moments..

I can't find my old B&B Lp's but here is the best of, this was also a limited Rhino VHS release, and someone has posted all the file info here

Barnes & Barnes - Zabagabee CD - 1988 - USA

Hello again Fantasmi. I wanted to invite you and your readers to my new social network that I have created. It's similar in appearance to myspace (minus all the hormone-crazed teenagers), but it is intended to serve as a hangout for artists, musicians, and music lovers. I have also included a forum category for music bloggers such as yourself to promote their blogs and share updates. If you are interested, here is the url:

I hope to see you there. Take care.
