[DIRTY OLD MAN] In 1971, when Clarence Reid first decided to record a set of X-rated song parodies and put himself on the cover disguised as a sort of thrift-store superhero, he probably never imagined anyone would want to hear it 40 years later. At the time, the Georgia-born songwriter was penning hits for soul artists like Betty Wright and Sam & Dave as well as releasing his own records of sturdy Southern R&B. He put out The Weird World of Blowfly, featuring such juvenilia as “Shittin' on the Dock of the Bay” and “Hole Man,” on his own label, mostly as a goof. Next thing he knows, he's made dozens of albums under the Blowfly alias, and his serious work is more obscure than his novelty records. Although his humor has never risen above eighth-grade level, 2006's Blowfly's Punk Rock Party includes a Ramones parody called “I Wanna Be Fellated,” which is clearly a stroke of genius. Heh heh, I said "stroke."
