start something silly that just sort of takes on a life of it’s
own? Welcome to Snaildartha: The Story of Jerry the Christmas
Snail. It started as a silly little
idea: Make the Life of Buddha into a Christmas
story oh yeah and make it a snail. The story was originally created
to be read by Shawn Stewart as part of the Red
Eye Collaborations Uneasy Listening series Holiday
extravaganza. Cause nothing says Christmas like a whole mess
All the while
every holiday it seems my bandwidth bills would spike up in December,
that’s when I remembered the original was still up.
The band here
is truly something else Organ by Scott ”Pink Slippers” LeGere master
session player and demigod of the Electone records label, On Drums
the Buddha of the beat Mr. Terry "Poker Face" Haanen,
and rounding out the musical trio Free Jazz legend George
Cartwright , one of the many things that makes this record
special is that it marks a much more melodic side of his playing
, as opposed to the insanity of his group Curlew.
The story is told by Comedian and raconteur Matt Fugate.
Mixed by Brian “don’t give me nickname” Jacoby .Masterred
by Bob ”What’s with all these strange capitalization
last names” DeMaa and produced and directed by
me ; Chris Strouth.So here it is Download and spread
