The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo

This is a rare find and I hope you enjoy the mashup of these two classics.

Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo meets The Gong Show

Oingo Boingo was an American new wave band. They are best known for their influence on other musicians, their soundtrack contributions and their high energy Halloween concerts. The band was founded in 1972 as a performance art group called The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, and from 1976 it was led by songwriter/vocalist Danny Elfman, who has since achieved substantial renown as a composer for film and television.

The Gong Show is a parody of television variety shows. It broadcast on NBC’s daytime schedule from June 14, 1976 through July 21, 1978, and in first-run syndication from 1976-1980 and 1988-1989. The NBC version and the 1977-1980 syndicated seasons were emceed by Chuck Barris, who also produced them.

Happy Halloween.
