Yes, we're cute. Like a kitten with his leg cut off. We've been best friends since we were five. We get up in the morning, put in the toast, laugh about something and play a tune or two. We'd rather barely get by on an instrument we don't know than play the cello flawlessly, and we value the quirkiness and delicate perfection of things that aren't perfect. We have joy, and are at times sad, political, and sarcastic. We harmonize with the purity of swans. We play lots of instruments (banjo, accordion, musical saw, guitar, trumpet, trombone, percussion, harmonica, ukelele, lap steel, glochenspiel etc), and never run out of things to say. We like bluegrass, freakfolk, punk rock, and long walks on sunny afternoons in the park. We have a fake rooster. Basically, we are a multi-tasking, antifolk, adoracore duo that's been creating excessive nonsensical categories to fit ourselves into since 1982. We hope that you have as much fun today as we did making our first album... Performed with artists such as: Kimya Dawson, Bitch (from Bitch and Animal), Old time Relijun, Bella Fea, Willy Mason, The Robot Ate me, The Future Kings of Nowhere and The Bower Birds at venues including: The Cats Cradle and Local 506 in Chapel Hill; The Duke Coffeehouse and Bull City Headquarters in Durham; and CBGB's in New York and other venues across the country. We just released our debut album, Oh Yell, on 307 Knox Records. Yours truly, Midtown Dickens
