Turn on the light and see the floor show.

"Roaches" - Bobby Jimmy & The Critters                                            
Russ Parr (aka Bobby Jimmy) and his Critters released 3 albums in the 80's on Rapsur Records. He owned and operated the label himself. It's good to be the boss, eh? This song is from their second LP, Roaches: The Beginning. A parody of the hit song Rumors by the Timex Social Club, this one is probably their most famous and got quite a bit of airplay especially on the Dr. Demento Show. It was released in 1986 and this is the 12" version which I believe is the same as the LP version and runs about a minute or so longer than the radio cut. I thought and still think it's pretty damn funny.
