Description

The story of The Shaggs is larger than life. It includes a grandmother’s prophecy, a driven father, three unassuming sisters, a cat named Foot-Foot, and perhaps the most polarizing outsider album of all time. In this episode of the Light In The Attic Podcast Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo) interviews original Shagg Dot Wiggin, and Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group) reads excerpts from his liner notes for our reissue of The Shaggs' 'Philosophy Of The World.'


Hosts/Producers: Hilary Staff & Jackie Allen

Editor & Co-Producer: Michelle Lanz

Guests: Dot Wiggin, Ira Kaplan, Lenny Kaye

All music from The Shaggs - Philosophy Of The World and The Shaggs - 7" Sweet Maria b/w The Missouri Waltz (Missouri State Song)
