Mumps - Rock & Roll This, Rock & Roll That: Best Case Scenario, You’ve Got Mumps

Mumps were not your ordinary punk rock band. For starters, they had a genuine TV star as their frontman. Lance Loud and his family were chronicled in PBS’ 1973 docuseries, An American Family, widely considered the first “reality TV show,” set in Santa Barbara, California.

While their live prowess was never a question, Mumps only released two singles before disbanding, 1977’s “I Like To Be Clean” on BOMP!, and “Rock & Roll This, Rock & Roll That” on Perfect Records the following year. For the first time, a true Mumps “album” exists with the release of Rock & Roll This, Rock & Roll That: Best Case Scenario, You’ve Got Mumps, with packaging containing photos, ephemera, and the Mumps story told via contributions from Kristian Hoffman, Paul Rutner, bassist Joe Katz, and Pat Loud.
