Wesley Willis Implores You to Cut the Mullet

Of all the songs inspired by haircuts, this one is among my favorites. (It's easily the most bizarre.) "Cut the Mullet" is from the fertile and troubled mind of the late Wesley Willis, a schizophrenic man who dealt with his demons by creating simple songs with a keyboard. A few people mocked Wesley when I saw him perform years ago, but most of the crowd was enthusiastic and supportive. Famous in his native Chicago and beyond, he died almost six years ago, leaving behind dozens of unusual songs like this one. Every time I see a mullet, this is the song that pops into my head. Rock over London, rock on Chicago . . .

I love Wesley! I met him at Gramaphone records here in Chicago years ago! He introduced me to the phrase "sh*t a*s". It has been a part of my vocabulary ever since. R.I.P.

"Tell the barber that you're sick of looking like an *sshole." It's poetry in motion.

This is my favorite song of his. Although I also love "Alanis Morissette" and "Rock and Roll McDonalds."
