The Rutles Wiki

Stanley J. Krammerhead III, Jr was an occasional visiting professor at the University of Please-Yourself, CA. In 1978, Melvin Hall approached him during work on his documentary All You Need Is Cash and asked him how good the Rutles' music was. Stanley stated:

“Listen, look, very simply, musicologically and ethnically The Rutles were essentially empirical mélanges, so they're rhythmically radical yet verbally passé and temporarily transcended lyrical content welded with historically innovative melodical material, transposed and transmogrified by the angst of the Rutland ethic experience, which elevated them from essentially alpha exponents of, in essence merely beta potential harmonic material into the prime cultural exponents of Aeolian codensic cosmic stanza form.”
