An Homage to Dr. Demento, Featuring Joan Jett, William Shatner, Weird al Yankovic, and More
Demented Punk Records recently released a huge, 2-hour long homage to punk rock radio legend Dr. Demento, curated and produced by John Cafiero, frontman of punk supergroup Osaka Popstar. The album includes songs by Dr. Demento collaborators including "over thirty different, never before released, all-new 'punk' cover versions of 'mad music and crazy comedy' songs famously heard on the airwaves of the legendary "Dr Demento Show"- intermixed with 'wild card' tracks showcasing some incredible, newly 'demented' versions of punk-rock classics." The 3-LP Vinyl or 2CD package comes with not only the music, but also a 48 page booklet, which can be purchased from their online store as well as t-shirts and enamel pins. See the gallery below for some of the art, artists, musicians, and photos from this ambitious project spanning Dr. Demento's far-reaching influence.
