You've seldom heard anything like their act! Rudy's first song, titled "'Til I Awake," is a strange one that begins, "When I Am Dying...with yellow roses drooping...the touch of your lips on my mouth." Don't miss the set-up to, "I'll Be Glad When You're Dead, You Rascal, You." After the punch-line, Olsen's maniacal laughter can be heard fading off-mike.
