Maurice and His Electric Fuse Foxes

Fake rock band from humor columnist Erma Bombeck's "Going Deaf from Rock 'n' Roll" column (January 23, 1967).

"Pardon me while I get the phone."
"I didn't hear anything ring," he said.
"It's always like that after three hours of listening to Maurice and His Electric Fuse Foxes. Just a ringing sound in my ears. Did you know the guitar player once got hiccups and it sold three million records?"

While the newspaper column text clearly says "Electric Fuse Foxes", some later book reprints give the name as "Electric Fuse Boxes", which makes more logical sense, and suggests the name was misprinted in the original run of the column. But we think it's an improvement.
