wikipedia Wrote:in the mid-1960s, austin withdrew his daughters from school, bought them instruments, and arranged for them to receive music lessons. they named themselves "the shaggs" after the contemporary shag hairstyle. in 1968, austin arranged for the girls to play a regular saturday night gig at the fremont, new hampshire town hall. the next year, the girls went into the studio and recorded their album, philosophy of the world. it is clear from the sound that the band was not ready to capture their performance on tape, but austin persisted.

in fact, listening to the record, the band seems to have no sense of melody, harmony, or rhythm. it is as though the drums were recorded in a separate room from the guitars and neither could hear what the other was doing.
