Wonder Boy - The Out Of Bodies get Kinky

Okay, that was a horrible play on words. The Out Of Bodies do the Kinks? That doesn't sound much better. So let's just get to the meat of the matter... wait, that's even worse... let's start again...

The Out Of Bodies were always big fans of The Kinks... and they've committed countless atrocities, I mean - countless impromptu recordings of Kinks songs throughout the years... Waterloo Sunset, Dedicated Follower Of Fashion, Apeman, Mr Pleasant...and this little gem, Wonder Boy.

With Wonder Boy someone actually bothered to write down the actual lyrics, which - if you're familiar with our recordings at all, you'll know that's a rare occurrence - preparation is NOT an Out Of Bodies trait by any stretch of the imagination!

So may we present to you our NEWEST video - - INCLUDING LYRICS!!! (Don't get too used to this!!)

WOW Comix


Heyyyyyyy, somebody beat us to it!! The dirty BASTARDS!!
(thanks, Lloyd, for bringing this to my attention)

Okay, so before *OUR* WOW Comics there was a WOW Comics... you think that made a difference to two kids in Elementary School who saw a vision of greatness in their own minds? Apparently not - and besides, our WOW Comics had something THEIR WOW Comics didn't have - and that was our two heroes, Spooky and Supersnooper!

Did it matter that the names Spooky and Supersnooper were ALSO out there already in some way? HEY, DON'T RAIN ON MY PARADE!!!

From WOW Comics 1976

Lloyd reminded me - something I had completely forgotten about - that even THIS 1976 rendition of our WOW Comics was NOT the first! Apparently YEARS before that while in Elementary School (yes, we go way back) we had created a version utilizing loose leaf and carbon paper, with each issue sporting a hand-colored cover - - like THIS!!...

An early version of our WOW Comics
How's THAT for rare, eh? Imagine finding one of THESE in your mother's attic! PRICELESS!!!
