The Four Deuces were an American rhythm and blues vocal quartet, formed in the mid-1950s in Salinas, California. The band was started by lead singer Luther McDaniel, and recorded several songs before they broke up in 1959. While active, the Four Deuces had moderate but short-lived popularity in 1956, mainly along the West Coast, mostly due to the frequent radio airplay of their hit song, "W-P-L-J." which obviously hit the ears of a young Francis Vincent Zappa. Zappa has conceded, admiringly, that he could not have written a song any more absurd. They only released three singles before disbanding.
