The Temple City Kazoo Orchestra - Sprach Kazoostra

Although online information is relatively sparse, it appears that the members of the kazoo ensemble attended high school together in Temple City, California, in the 1970s. Two singles were released, the "Some Kazoos" EP (1978) and Kazooed On Classics / In The Mood (1982), both on the Rhino Records label, at that time home of leftfield artists including Wild Man Fischer.[1] A number of their distinctive covers of popular favourites have since appeared on compilations of novelty songs.

Links to Peel

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Peel's love of unusual cover versions meant that Temple City Kazoo Orchestra's debut release received extensive airtime on his show. Despite repeated plays from "Some Kazoos" in October 1978, Peel is not known to have played Temple City Kazoo Orchestra again after that month.
