"Hallo I am Ebn." "Hallo I am Ozn." "Hallo we are Ebn-Ozn. Perhaps you hear of our smash hit 'AEIOU Sometimes Y' yes? Yes? No? Oh."



Elektra 60319-1 (1984)

Side One
Bag Lady (I Wonder)
Stop Stop Give It Up
I Want Cash
Kuchenga Pamoja
TV Guide

Side Two
Video D.J.
Pop Art Bop
Rockin' Robin'
AEIOU Sometimes Y
The Dawn

Written by Ebn-Ozn
Produced by Ebn
Co-Produced by Ozn
Videos Produced by Ozn except
"Rockin' Robin'" Co-Produced by Ebn

Gee, I wonder who they REALLY are. (No I don't - I have a hunch they're included in the "Special Thanks" section, though)

Vocals by Ozn, Fairlight by Ezn - for the most part.

Guest appearance by TITO PUENTE on "Video D.J.!"

I have no idea what "Videos" they could be talking about, though. I guess they didn't come with this LP.

Hell, I'm just thrilled to have this - who WOULDN'T want the album by the one-hit wonder? (I actually have TWO 12" singles but I couldn't tell you what the other one is without looking it up. And I'm LAZY.)

Purchased: 8.7.3
From: Treehouse Records, Minneapolis, MN
Price: $2.00

Wow! 2 bucks! What a steal!

AMG says they are Ned Liben and Robert Rosen. So I can see where they get Ebn and Ozn. Wait, no I can't.



Frosty - did you sing along to the girly parts?

Ebn(on the left?) looks like that guy from the Melvins(but on the subway diet)! He's not Clay Henry, Clay Henry.

I love how that song NEVER made me think of TWO GUYS.

EVER.

I always assumed it was a pair of ladies.

Big giant bonus points for the poster who can say what famous early TV star was featured in the EBN-OZN video for "Bag Lady"!!!!!



The ghost of a steam train - echoes down my track
It's at the moment bound for nowhere -
just going round and round
Playground kids and creaking swings -
lost laughter in the breeze
I could go on for hours and I probably will -
but I'd sooner put some joy back
In this town called malice

One more thing about this photo.

Does Ozn look like he kinda rubbed himself to orgasm IN THOSE PANTS earlier in the day?

That's a little creepy.

I think the song you're thinking of is "IOU" by Freeez. If it goes "A-E-A-E-I-O-U-U, I sometimes cry", that's Freeez. It's actually a guy singing--John Rocca--but it sounds like a girl.

The Ebn-Ozn song is slower in tempo; there's a pause between each letter. Despite the impression that may be left by the cover, there really wasn't much doubt that it was a guy singing even on casual listen.

They're both good songs.

I do vaugely remember seeing and liking the "Bag Lady" video, but I have no idea who was in it.

Good to have this feature back.

No points for you!

Is the rest of the album any good CRZ? I liked thier hit well enough, but never heard anything else.

They play the 'AEIOU and sometimes Y' fairly regularly on VH-1 Classic (yes, it STILL rules!)

I had no idea they were known as Ebn & Ozn. I'd only seen the video, I had never seen any interviews with them, so that's some neat info. Thanks!

I must confess I haven't listened to it yet.

o_O... they scare me. You'd think someone would notice that (or was it just your copy?) before they printed 'em up...

There's an interview with Ozn here (80music.about.com) but he's not asked about it. There's another picture of this cover there and it looks about the same (except they trimmed the border - they probably had a SLIGHTLY smaller scan area )

On another note, apparently Ebn died like five years ago.

    Back, WAY back, to pieman
    AMG says they are Ned Liben and Robert Rosen. So I can see where they get Ebn and Ozn. Wait, no I can't.
I guess "Liben/Rosen" didn't have the ring that "Ebn-Ozn" has? (Note: they rhyme!)

Hey, isn't that that one opening lyric from that Def Leppard song? "Ebn-Ozn-Liben-Rosen."

*ducks*
