Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.


Andy Prieboy

I recently got hold of some Wall of Voodoo albums, which are superb, and was reminded of former frontman Andy Prieboy's solo output. I tried to find as much as I could, only to find that the majority of it is out-of-print, which is a damn shame, as he has created some truly amazing songs.

Andy's site really doesn't give up much info, either...

There are one or two download options on Amazon though.

I did finally manage to track down a copy of '...Upon My Wicked Son', however, the file was incomplete. I was able to salvage these tracks though.

Andy Prieboy - Tomorrow Wendy
