Lenny and the Squigtones (Casablanca, 1979)

From Wikipedia:

Lenny and the Squigtones
is a fictional musical group headed by Michael McKean and David Lander, the two actors who played the characters Lenny and Squiggy on the television series Laverne & Shirley. Recorded live at the Roxy in Hollywood, they perform parodies of 50's rock ballads ("Night After Night," "Creature Without A Head"). In between, there's plenty of schtick and patter ("So's Your Old Testament," "Babyland"). The group's eponymous debut album, Lenny & Squiggy sing Lenny and the Squigtones, was released on the Casablanca label in 1979. The album is now a collector’s item because of credited guitar work by future Spinal Tap member Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest). A photo on the inside cover also includes two band members who look a lot like Derek Smalls and David St. Hubbins of Spinal Tap. Also includes 'Murph', the keyboard player from The Blues Brothers, and "Ming the Merciless," actually Kiss drummer Peter Criss without his famous "cat" costume and make-up
