t takes a very special band to stand out in a music festival line-up which includes Radiohead. However, the first ever festival appearance by Dr Teeth & The Electric Mayhem – The Muppet Show’s resident band – generated enough excitement to warrant their inclusion on the bill at San Francisco’s Outside Lands festival. The band features muppets Dr Teeth, Animal, Janice, Floyd Pepper, Zoot and Lips. The band played covers of Mowgli’s’ San Francisco, Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros’ track Home and even closed with a rendition of The Beatles’ classic With A Little Help From My Friends with the Oakland Tabernacle Choir.
“I was there,” Ian Hughes told Jammy Toast, “and it might just have changed my life. They were almost embarrassingly brilliant. Over three days of Outside Lands, there was nothing that matched the reaction to Dr Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. I don’t think anyone was expecting something as spectacularly fun as that. It was as clever and hilarious a performance as you’d expect from The Muppets.”
Here at Jammy Toast all we want to know is has Michael Eavis booked next year’s Glastonbury Festival headliners yet?
Just a thought!
