Dancing Duck Song – Chilled In A Field – 17th July 2011

September 13th, 2011

We were surprised when Jack told us we were to play “The Dancing Duck Song”, first made famous in a South Park episode. Yet it seems to work well, and so once again Jack’s vision has proven true despite all the odds.

July 28th, 2011

When we played at Planet Angel Chilled In A Field last month, Jack had told us to use playing cards to let the audience determine the track list. Was this some part of his plan or just the crazy whim of a lunatic?

It’s hard for us to judge, but the results seemed nice. Here’s Rob our cameraman picking a card near the end of the deck and getting Squeeze’s “Up The Junction”
