featuring “an incongruous mixture of styles” via


The Specials – ‘Gangsters’ performed 1980 Saturday Night Live

Discovered listening to Fred Armisen on WTF with Maron, wherein Armisen is quoted “best musical performance ever, of everything, definitely on SNL“.

He also relates how such musical performances on SNL immediately resonated with him (at age 15) and wired/influenced his comedic brain.
