My friend Howie Pyro just sent me this pic from a Blowfly gig he'd just dj'ed at. In case you don't know the Blow, he is a famously foul-mouthed fool who puts on a mind-blowing stage show with filthy lyrics. I bought his box set years ago and was amazed by lyrics like:

She's too fat to fuck
She's too fat to fuck
She's too fat to fuck
All she can do is suck.

(Obviously I've inspired him, too.)

And one tender ballad goes contains a line like this:

Deep in the walls of your pussy there's a war going on
Where the AIDS and the herpes fight.

The Blowfly had a legitimate career as a recording artist named Clarence Reid, who also wrote genius songs like Betty Wright's smash CLEAN UP WOMAN and Gwen McCrae's timelessly funky ROCKIN' CHAIR.

Despite his seriously advanced age (70?), this freak tours constantly--check out his schedule on his site and make sure to catch him if he's in your area. At a Phoenix gig, he's sharing the bill with Rudy Ray Moore, of the Chitlins Circuit comedy albums and DOLEMITE movies fame.


Blowfly's secret to longevity?

Over the years, Blowfly's seen a lot of his contemporaries fall by the way side. His survival can partially be credited to the fact that while Blowfly is totally whacked in the head, Reid is a God-fearing, Bible-carrying Christian. "I never drink, never smoke, and I never use drugs," confesses Reid. "I may go to hell, but it won't be for those things!"
