Feedbag was a comedy band made up of revolving scenesters, often wearing costumes (such as Halsey's slave boy). I only saw them twice, and I'm not sure there were many more shows than that, but the reputation certainly was bigger than life.
From Brian Barnes: Two shows, one was stinkfest (ugh, spent some of the day with Paul stinking himself up, you never forget that....) and the other spork at soda. I'm pretty sure that Ben Richards played bass as stinkfest, and Brent at soda (with Halsey and Todd might have been there, I forgot to ask him.)
Ev quickly hammered out the geetarz and bass lines as well as the heartfelt, operatic vocal bits; I assisted on a scream and stood back- to-back with Mr. Smith on some alternating solo work on the ol' guitfiddle ...
Rockin' the skins is the awesomely evil Mr. Halsey; rumor has it he played the drum parts (gong and all) in one take while blindingly ripped on angel dust and soy milk and hit the snare drum with severed goat legs (the hooves make a nice 'snap' on the snare drum) ...
Once we sober up we'll continue to add assorted extras to the song (goat screams, spooky organ intro, etc.) ... (everybody is welcomed and encouraged to contribute)
For your downloading and sonic enjoyment, I have provided (below) the logon information for my ftp site and placed an .aif file and an AAC version of the song ... with a decent network connection, each file will take approximately 666 seconds to download ..
