Band BiographyEdit

Art & Artie had been playing together since they were teenagers, recording funny songs for their own amusement. In the 1970s, they had the idea to send a tape to [http://www.drdemento.com Dr. Dement -- he rejected the tape, but encouraged them to keep trying. Soon, though, they had a tape that he would play, and they started getting requests. Their first big hit was "[[Fish Heads:Barnes & Barnes|Fish Head", which is still the most requested song on the [[Dr. Dement show. They even had some mainstream success with it, although most of their other songs only had successes on KROQ or Dr. Demento (but very great success). In the early 1980s, they tried to go more mainstream with the Soak It Up EP on [[CB/Boulevard Records, but while the album sold well for an indie label, the numbers did not translate to success for a major, and the followup album [[Kodovoner:Barnes & Barnes|Kodovone was shelved until this year. Their next album, back at [[Rhin was a mix of [[Novelt and Serious songs, but it didn't sell as well, and [[Rhin demanded the next record be a straight [[novelt album like their first. They've also produced records by [[Wild Man Fische and [[Crispin Hellion Glove. Barnes and Barnes are still together and recording, though their output has slowed.
