The Ziggens. Eclectic punkers, former label mates of iconic ska band Sublime, and all-around comic geniuses. If you haven’t listened to their 1998 opus Pomona Lisa, do yourself a favor, get a copy. Produced by The Car’s guitarist, Elliot Easton, it features an endearingly bizarre hodgepodge of folk, ska, blues and punk jams. Dig the hilarious “I took My Mom to the Prom,” a prime example of the marriage between this band's lyrical wit and sonic fury.
