Just the living heck of it all...

Mister Nizz


My friend who seems to be specializing in finding media debuts of older bands (see Devo, below) also sent me the first appearance of Oingo Boingo on national TV...

On the Gong Show.. yep, that's right. Way back in 1976. It's hysterical, watching the "celebrities" trying to figure out Oingo Boingo in this context. Buddy Hackett?? Sheri Lewis?? Considering Chuck Baris' raging coke habit at the time, this clip becomes even more surreal.

At least they did the right thing and made them win!
