Corn Mo!

What dya get if you cross Meat Loaf and Ren and Stimpy? Corn Mo, of course! (Or something a lot like him, I imagine.)

Corn Mo. I accidently discovered him about 3 or 4 years ago when I was in London. He was supporting They Might Be Giants (remember them?) at the time, and I've been a mega-geeko sad fan ever since. Evidently he's supporting Ben Folds (boo-hiss rubbish) later this year, but I urge you all to go just to see 'Mo.

Whilst his brilliant, whimsical songs about ice-cream, Gary Busey and wetting yourself at school (sung in the style of a Jim Stein rock-opera) are all well and good, Corn Mo also happens to be an equally brilliant, whimsical and hilarious writer.

Check out The Plausible Frog from his blog.
