I used to have a crazy looking pineapple pencil topper when i was in elementary school. It was part of a set of other pencil toppers including a corn cob & an apple. Anyhow, it was very surprising to me when i was walking around Berkeley some time in the 80s & saw a show flier with the same pineapple pencil topper on it, with the name PSYCOTIC PINEAPPLE. This connection & the great art from the band's bass player John Seabury create the obscure ephemeral feeling i am obsessed with.
Psycotic Pineapple are still around in some form or another as PYNOMAN.
Here's a bunch of Psycotic Pineapple gig posters.
You can download Psycotic Pineapple's 45 "I Wanna Get Rid of You"
