The Shaggs Philosophy Of The World

The Shaggs
Philosophy Of The World


For the past few years we’ve been working with everyone’s favorite outsider sister act The Shaggs to put together an in-depth reissue of their 1969 album Philosophy Of The World. 
The story of The Shaggs is larger than life. It includes a grandmother’s prophecy, a driven father, three unassuming sisters, a cat named Foot-Foot, and perhaps the most polarizing album of all time.

Many talented fans of The Shaggs have contributed to this special reissue with liner notes by the legendary Lenny Kaye. A deluxe option comes on “Shag Carpet” color swirl wax with a Shaggs poster and enamel pin. Seth Bogart (Hunx & His Punx) designed a limited edition Shaggs t-shirt for the release, which is available as an add-on. The album is alsoavailable on black wax, CD, and digitally.

In addition, acclaimed animator Joanna Neborsky has created a new animated music video telling the story of The Shaggs (watch below), As an added bonus, there will be a number of Shaggs events this fall, including a Shaggs reunion show (details forthcoming).

Let's get weird!
