Exotic Newcastle Disease

November 3, 2008 9:13 PM

This is a new track by my band, Royal Quiet Deluxe -- I play an amplified typewriter for percussion, Tim plays guitar, and two chickens vocalize and play keys. Also, a phone recording of a PSA about Exotic Newcastle Disease in Southern California is mixed in along with crickets, locusts, and other summer sounds in the Virginia mountains.

A little while back, I posted another track by my band. For those of you (most of you) that are new to the band, we were two humans and two chickens -- I manipulated a drum machine and made vocal noise, my friend Tim played the bass, and two chickens played keyboards.

If you want to see a video of me telling the story behind the band, you can see it on my blog, as well as a few links to some other chicken-band-related material.

Hope you enjoy it ...

I could listen to this for days. Was the phone live, and did the chickens press the buttons to select the recorded message?

Enjoying stuff is complicated sometimes, but I'm pretty sure that I approve.
