Going "Have Moicy" one further, Jeffrey Fredericks tweaked and twisted that pizza into some kind of musical moibus strip (complete with several extra pounds of laughter). Alas, he was too busy living and making music to record much (except the soon-to-be-reissued "Spiders in the Moonlight"). Lucky for everyone, his widow, Kathryn, has been rounding up his best recorded performances and releasing them on her Frederick Productions label. Last Fall's "Jeffrey Frederick & The Clamtones B.C." is a brilliant, hilarious, poignant, rollicking, two-CD set from a Vancouver, B.C. radio broadcast in 1976 that includes his versions of many songs from "Have Moicy" and a lot more. Earlier this year, the rest of that concert was released, "Steve Weber & The Holy Modal Rounders, B.C." Check em out.

By the way, Jeff was the grand-nephew of the legendary American bank robber, Willie Sutton -- the one who allegedly answered the question, "Why do you rob banks?" with "Because that's where the money is."
