“Owls” is the second video/single from The Prof.Fuzz 63’s new album “Owls” on Sister Raygun Records. 

On 21 October 1997, The Onion: America’s Finest News Source boldly proclaimed “Owls are Assholes” (https://www.theonion.com/owls-are-assholes-1819586357). I’ve pondered that statement ever since, making mental notes of which owls were cool (Woodsy Owl, employee of the US Forest Service of “Give a Hoot—Don’t Pollute” fame) and those who were in fact assholes (the smug Owl from Winnie the Pooh, and Mr. Owl the Tootsie Pop thief). At the end of the day, I couldn’t justify passing blanket judgement on an entire species, so this song takes aim at “THAT Owl,” and not all owls. “Owls” is a clangy rockabilly-ish number that sounds like The Fall covering George Jones (think “White Lightning”). It’s stupid catchy and your kids will sing the chorus really loud and embarrass you in public. My biggest takeaway in writing this dumb ditty, was that while not all owls are assholes, a lot of people are “that owl.” So yeah, it’s more metaphorical than zoological. Feel free to call “that guy” an owl next time he makes some self-righteous know-it-all statement on social media. We’ll all know what you mean.
