Taiwan Tunes in to ApologetiX

We just received our first email from Taiwan:
Have you ever thought about doing a parody of an entire album, song for song? If I may, I'd like to suggest "Sgt. Pepper."
Thanks for the suggestion, Jiaxiang. We actually have written parodies of four songs from the Beatles' "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," although we've only ever recorded and released one of them on CD -- "L.S.F." on "Jesus Christ Morningstar." The other three are:
"Probably Your Only Smart Close Friends" (parody of "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band") about Job and his three "comforters."
"With Little Help From My Friends" (parody of "With a Little Help From My Friends") also about Job and his "friends."
"A Day in the Loaf" ("A Day in the Life") about the feeding of the 5000 and the feeding of the 4000 later on.
They are sitting in the vaults waiting for their proper time, along with several hundred other unrecorded parodies. One of the reasons we don't do CDs exclusively devoted to one genre, or group, or album. is that we want to make sure we have something for everybody on each of our CDs, especially since we usually only put out one a year.
