He withdrew his daughters, Helen, Dorothy, Betty & Rachel, from school, bought them instruments and set them up with music and voice lessons, going so far as to book them on Saturday nights at the Fremont, New Hampshire Town Hall. Eventually, he booked some time in a recording studio, where it became abundantly clear to the befuddled engineer that the girls weren't ready to record. Austin reportedly replied "I want to get them while they're hot." The result was ''Philosophy Of The World.''

* EstablishingSeriesMoment: Put off by "Philosophy of the World"s arrhythmic beat, sing-speak vocals and hopelessly amateurish instrumentation? Well get ready for ''eleven more tracks'' of it.

The Shaggs had [[SoBadItsGood an unusual approach]] at making pop music. Not only did their instruments sound blatantly out of tune, but their limited ability caused each member's individual performance to seemingly follow its own time signature. Each individual note matched up to every syllable they sang, and, in general, it all added up to what the average person would hear as a lot of disorganized sound. Despite all this, the band have developed [[CultClassic a small cult following]] as well as some good reviews over the years (amongst them being no less than Lester Bangs, [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]] and Music/FrankZappa), with many praising the honesty and humanism of their lyrical content. Nowadays they are seen as a prime example of OutsiderMusic.
