I was rummaging at a local music store that actually carries LP’S!  Not VINYL, but LP’S!  Meaning “Long Playin’ Records!”  That’s what folks used to call music on those plastic platters before they decided that it was passe’ and switched to CD’s! 

ANYWAY:  The good Doctor stumbled across an album from his youth.  The album?  PARLIAMENT:  FUNKENTELECHY VS THE PLACEBO SYNDROME!  Casablanca records, 1977!  Yeah, buddy!  Did that thing bring back memories!

What was most especially special about this lp was that it had the actual, rarely seen, comic book inside!  YEAH!  It was Doctor Funkenstein VS Sir Nosedevoidoffunk!  It was an awesome comic drawn by the amazing OVERTON LOYD!  Now, some of you may not know this, but, Doctor Sarcofiguy’s alter-ego is an artiste, and he was inspired by two people, Al Hirshfeld, and OVERTON LOYD!

Oh, there was nothing like the cariacature work of the magnificent Lloyd.  It was funny.  Memorable.  And wonderfully free flowin’!  Very structured in it’s “spontaneity!”  I dunno if my alter-ego ever feels like he’s captured that grace of pen that Loyd, or Hirshfeld, has in his career, but he’s certainly tried!
