Critters Buggin Get The Clackervalve and the Old Clobberd Biscuits Out and Smack the Grand Ham Clappers Mother
On Halloween freaky jazz collective Critters Buggin released their long awaited live DVD Get The Clackervalve and the Old Clobberd Biscuits Out and Smack the Grand Ham Clappers Mother. The DVD, which is available at local Seattle, WA retail stores and on Crittersbuggin.com, captures the groups performance at the Warsaw Summer Jazz Days in 1999. The gig was shot by a high quality multi-camera team for Polands national TV station recorded live to 2 track, using a mics/board matrix recording. The performance took place in The Palace of Culture and Science,
a giant Stalin built building, complete Soviet touches. The DVD also includes a pair of
self-proclaimed bizarre intro films made by Word Public for the band’s Tokyo shows in 2004. Though Critters Buggin is currently off the road, a number of the groups members, including Mike Dillon, Matter Chamberlain and Skerik, have gigs scheduled throughout the coming months.
