Make horrid scars and gashes.


Kellog's "Snap Crackle Pop Tunes" (Kellog's, SCP-83, 1983)

Wake up to this 7" promo collection of various Snap Crackle Pop related songs released by Kellog's in 1983. The lack of really kid-friendly graphics or song titles (side two is just broken down into genres) makes me assume that this was mostly intended for industry or radio use, but maybe it was a premium? I came across my copy used so I can't say for sure. UPDATE: A friend of mine assures me that it WAS a mail-in premium and that he distinctly recalls saving Rice Krispies boxtops to get his copy.

Of course it was the promise of a cereal song being done in the style of "New Wave" as-seen-through-the-eyes-of-corporate-marketers that forced me to buy it, and I really wasn't too disappointed. The end result is something like Meat Loaf meets the Motels (or "Billy Joel gets into a car crash with Quarterflash and Richard O'Brien writes them the ticket" if you prefer), and it comes complete with the classic st-st-stutter that skinny tie enthusiasts around the globe simply couldn't get enough of.

Just picked up a copy today for 50 cents at a local thrift store and was surprised to find it on the web.
