On today's episode, I talk to musician Robert Haimer AKA Artie
Barnes. Born in Los Angeles, Robert began playing music with his
friend, actor Bill Mumy, in high school, recording songs for their
own amusement as Barnes & Barnes. But when Dr. Demento began
playing their music in the late-'70s, they started to think of
Barnes & Barnes more professionally, bolstered by the
popularity of their track "Fish Heads" among a number of others.
Since then, they've released over a dozen albums, mostly on Rhino
Records, and their latest Pancake Dream is now available on
Demented Punk Records.
