Shout Out For Some Rock Nerd Help

Shout Out For Some Rock Nerd Help

Will Sheff plays DJ on All Songs Considered this week. Will is the songwriter and guiding light for Okkervil River.

One of the songs Will picked was by a group called The Penetrators. He thinks the band is from Syracuse, and says they might be an old soul band or garage rock band, but there's very little information out there about the group. We've seen a live album by The Penetrators on the Web. But the song Will played is from an old 45 he got from a collector friend down in Austin.

The song is called "The Scandalizer."

We want to know:

1. Who are The Penetrators?
2. Who wrote the song?
3. Who is singing?
4. Who is Curtis Seals?
5. When and where was this recorded?

Help us solve the mystery.

"Scandalizer"
