I’ve finally made it!!

Album notes
The JUST FARR A LAUGH albums go far beyond the normal scope of the world of prank calls. Writers and humorists, Andrew Earles & Jeffrey Jensen inject a lifetime of pop culture obscure knowledge (spanning from the 1970s to the present) into the standard crank calls to the pompous and the unwitting. It’s no coincidence the collection’s released on Matador Records as there’s a definite musical tint to the proceedings. Fishbone and Primus are namedropped in one call, while an angry Christopher Cross rants about his three Grammys to a tour guide in another, and a Quincy Jones/Jermaine Stewart cover band attempts to get a booking on yet another. The collection is buoyed by extensive liner notes featuring the thoughts of Earles & Jensen, as well as a bevy of illustrations of all sorts, including drawings from indie pop stars Devendra Banhart and Adam Green.

    I love pop culture references in prank calls. There is nothing funnier than referencing some Alex Trebek or Teletubbies to people who have no idea what you’re talking about. Especially if you work them into an elaborate and complicated storyline.

    Nice site,

    I don’t know, the Kenny Rogers import looks killer. Mazel tov. You deserve to be auctioned off. And, I mean that in the nicest way possible.
