Were the Shaggs mentally 'challenged'?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : I Really Love Music : One Thread

Living alone in their father's house practising instruments all day could not have had a good effect on the Shaggs...what is the real story behind their success? Anyone know? Favourite song? Favourite Shagg? I am a Dot man myself.

In the movie who would potray the shaggs or do the soundtrack? Veruca Salt? The Weekend?

I read a interview with I think it was Helen Wiggin in ROLLERDERBY, she said their dad used to fuck all his daughters. That record used to seem cute to me but now it seems really fucking creepy.

Could you post it?

I could try & find it...I didnt even have that issue of the mag tho', I borrowed it off a friend, & I can't remember what issue it was or anything...You could probably find it easy enough.

Duane, I don't really use this forum anymore, you should check out the egroup and put yourself on digest so it wouldnt be annoying. It's really good fun.

And you can talk about this creepy shaggs knowledge.
