Abigail first learned of this “prank” album from the Ridiculous Crime episode The Battlin' Fleetwood Macs. The Masked Marauders band was made up of members from the Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band. Chicken on a Unicycle has an amazing illustration of the genealogy and history of these two bands.

Read the original fake review of The Masked Marauders that appeared in Rolling Stone on October 18, 1969!

Abigail shared that she recently watched Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, which has a similar backstory to that of The Masked Marauders. The Wikipedia entry for the movie and the original Funny or Die trailer that inspired the movie are both worth a look. You can watch the film for free on The Roku Channel!

I Can’t Get No Nookie, featuring a Mick Jagger impersonator, frequently gets mislabeled as an outtake from The Rolling StonesJamming with Edward sessions.

The version of I Am the Japanese Sandman (Rang Tang Ding Dong) that appears on The Masked Marauders is a cover of The Cellos’ Rang Tang Ding Dong (I Am the Japanese Sandman) (and includes the same racist music and lyrics). In trying to locate the origins of the song, we also played Paul Whiteman’s The Japanese Sandman (instrumental) and Nora BayesThe Japanese Sandman (with lyrics).

Listen to The Truncated Marauders, our “resequencing” of this album.
