You can order some goons from here: 

Robot A. Hull was the Creem writer.  The Goons still play together 
occasionally.  There was a good history of the Goons on the web but I can't 
find it now.

There are rumored to be hundreds of hours of tapes.  Yow.  They would write 
a song, record it and go on the next one.
