OK, let’s tie together National Pi Day and the National elections in our own, odd little vinyl way. Today is Pi Day, 3.14 etc…, another fabulous fake holiday that sells more eatin’ pie than math scholarships. But back in the 1970s there were rude jokesters that refused to run for office, like the band Mom’s Apple Pie. Ordinary, mildly successful, they made history with this licentious cover that was instantly banned, quickly correctable and highly collectible. So sneak a peek and remember this band from Ohio on the eve of the Ohio Primary.
Or, you could pull some other delicious off-the-shelf un-banned bands, albums and songs, like “American Pie,” Humble Pie, “Flaming Pie,” “Pie In the Sky,” Sugar Pie, “Cherry Pie,” Angel Pie, “Apple, Peaches Pumpkin Pie,” “En Pie de Guerra,” “Pie Jesu,” Sugar Pie DeSanto, “Try the Pie,” The Apple Pie Motherhood Band, “The Fuzzy Peach Pie and Other Lunacies,” Magic Pie, Sister Cow Pie, “Sweetie Pie,” Hedgehog Pie, “RC Cola and a Moon Pie,” Randy Pie, “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch),” Code Pie, Pie, “Pie Is Gone,” “Bake Dat Chicken Pie,” Pie Plant Pete, “Cutie Pie,” “Easy As Pie,” Pie Boys Flat, “Key Lime Pie,” The Pietasters, “Pie In the Sky,” “Pottery Pie,” “Pizza Pie And Junk,” “Pot Pie,” “Honey Pie,” “Spy With A Pie.”
The list goes on and on. Hey, Dave Baby Cortez served up “Tweetie Pie” and even THE Tweetie Pie cut a slice o’wax!
