Blessed Nobody (1967)


Often called the most innovative musical work of the modern age, Blessed Nobody was built around a magical fantasy theme, held to much more tightly than was the war theme for UXB. The band posed for the cover in costume as traveling medieval minstrels and all the tracks were built around the idea of a fantasy sound with magical influences. This resulted in an Ep!phanee heavy record, but stands as her greatest collected work.

Blessed Nobody is often considered the third Ladybug Movie, though it was not filmed, directed, or produced by professionals. Instead, Ep!phanee and the others simply adlibbed falling into their imagined magical fantasy world, playing both themselves and a long list of characters. While some consider it a cult classic, it is hardly ever shown.
