|10:14 am - Hello, my name is Hugo Chavez!|
Once I met the King of Spain!
Now I eat humble pie!
Chavez is not a nice man, apparently. Go King!
Are there any CITGO stations in Spain?

Ha! I went hunting for The Bobs singing (First I was a Hippie, Then I was a Stockbroker,) Now I am a Hippie Again, but apparently they never made a video. How sad.
The Bobs did some crazy shit with ISO back in the 80s. If anything, the song probably would've been used in an ISO video, but I don't think so.
They were also tapped by NPR in the late 80s to provide topical humor song commentary for All Things Considered (I think Ian Shoales' "I Gotta Go" segments were also used from time to time on ATC back then, too) and I'm pretty sure the hippie/stockbroker song was one of the NPR songs, as well as "Golly, Ollie" and "Paper or Plastic".
And I'm also reasonably sure a whole bunch of 'em were tacked on to the end of a later Songs for Tomorrow Morning CD release as 'bonus tracks' or something. But they weren't on the end of my well-worn cassette recorded right off the vinyl, though. (Side 2: My, I'm Large.)
Yay for the Bobs!
"I don't know....just a BAG!"
Wow, this is bringing back good Minnesota Public Radio Morning Show memories! Thanks!
(Oh, and sorry for the threadjack, but really, Spatch, you brought it on yourself.) ;-)

Mr. Consumer, please pause to reflect!
The choice you make may have a global effect
On lumberjacks and turtles, politicians and fish
Would you like a paper bag? Is that your wish?
On the other hand we offer a bag that won't leak
And besides -- it's got handles!
(if you need any Bobs, lemme know. I can hook you up. some of their early stuff is just stunning. The Deprogrammer is amazing.)
The ISO Dance Theater was an avant-garde dance troupe in the 80s, comprised mostly, I think, of members of Momix (there was a bunch of overlap between the two or whatever, I'm not sure of the full history.) At any rate, they did some live performances with the Bobs, who got into the dancing and singing as well. There's a video of the performance that often finds its way into limited reissue, but it's still kinda rare.
