I'd never heard of this psychedlic-pop trio until someone sent me a link of this insane performance from The Smothers Brothers. The two girls on one side are really groovin' but the Penelope Tree look-a-like on the left stands totally still throughout the nuber as if she's petrified from a bad acid trip. Or several.

I also found their cover of MOCKINGBIRD, which James Taylor popularized later on. Miss Penelope still isn't moving, but at least they stuck her in the middle so it looks a little more natural. And the other two are essentially moonwalking--until their feet were shown I thought the stage was revolving.

I can sympathise with the woman in green, weed use to effect me in the same way, while others would be having a great time, dancing laughing etc. I'd be stood like a statue in a paranoid stupor. T'was a nightmare!

That's not moonwalking, Bunny. It was called the Skate. Kind of a James Brown slither crossed with the Boogaloo. Very cool to see (extremely) white girls dancing that way.

Now learn it!

Yes, ma'am!

And Mitzi, I once "took pot" (as my mom calls it) before performing, and thank god I was wearing a long dress, beause I was overwhelmed with paranoia an my leg started shaking uncontrollably. Well, and then again, this occurred 20 years ago at the Pyramid, when it's conceivable that I might have been trying out a new number! --LB
