Bangkok Shocks, Saigon Shakes, Soft Toy Rocks

I recently became involved in a project called Teddy Rock, which is a new kids album full of traditional nursery rhymes performed in a variety of punk rock musical styles. Teddy Rock is the brainchild of Anton Hughes [who will surely forever be remembered as the Malcolm McLaren of soft toy entertainment] and has been picked up by the ABC who will be releasing the CD and DVD this August. I confidently recommend the album to parents like me who have discovered voices in their head instructing them to dismember the Wiggles or for anyone who wonders what The Farmer Takes A Wife would sound like if sung by Glenn Danzig.

The DVD contains 18 music videos I have been diligently creating over the past several months and the end result looks pretty neat. "I'll be the judge of that" I hear you interject, so to back up my bold assertion here's a few stills from the various songs. Click on an image to embiggen.

Short of keyboard cat releasing a new album of Limp Bizkit covers, there is little that makes the internet totally wee it's britches with excitement more than the Xray Studios swear word of the month announcement. This month is no exception with celebrity judges Richard Pryor and Ian Chappell spending 34 sleepless nights pouring over a bevy of high quality entries.
