In 2003 (I think) I performed my first run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Anyone who's attended the festival knows what an incredible place it is to be in August. In addition to lots of great music and theatre, I saw a slew of today's most side-splittingly talented comedians - folks like Brendon Burns, Janey Godley, Lucy Porter and the always incredible (and apparently unhinged), Boothby Graffoe. It left a real impression on me. I've always done comedy songs on my albums and in my live show - stuff like S&M, VD Blues, Nookie in the Mail, etc... - but that Fringe experience inspired me to finally sit down and produce an entire album of comedy songs for adults which is, 'Squirrels in the Attic'. Within months of its release, a number of tracks became internet hits, winning awards such as 'I Miss Monica' [People's Choice Award: Huffingtonpost.com], 'Doint, Doint, It's Just a Little Joint' [Top Comedy Song: American Marijuana Music Awards (I even got a trophy!) and 'A Terrible Pickle' [Finalist:Treehugger.com], '4 More Years' [Finalist: Huffingtonpost.com], etc... Other tracks like 'Death to the Neighbors', 'I Never Really Like You All That Much' and 'Just the Right Size', have become fan-favorites and never fail to generate peels of laughter in my live set (well, except for that one time I almost got kicked off a cruise-ship filled with octogenarians... but that's another story). Anyway, if you haven't heard this album yet, you're in for a fun surprise. ;-) Enjoy! Deano
Here's how it works:
Option (A): If things are tight and your wallet's lookin' a little thin, just go ahead and use the link(s), at the very bottom of this page, to download, 'Squirrels in the Attic' - comedy songs for adults, for free. (maybe bring some friends along to the next gig I play in your neighborhood)
Option (B): If, on the other hand, things are honky-dory, and you'd like to contribute something to the cost of creating all this cool, original music, simply click on one of the DONATE links below (you can pay in dollars, pounds or euros, with any debit or credit card or via PayPal), then come back to this page and download the new album.
WARNING: This CD contains obscene language, gratuitous depictions of violence, rude references to perverse sexual acts, disparaging remarks about Republicans and an irresponsible endorsement of illegal substances. Parental discretion is advised.
Choose from the following download options: 1. CD-quality .wav (lossless) audio or 2. excellent sounding, compressed .mp3 (192k) audio.
[NOTE: wav files are larger, take longer to download and take up more room on your hard-drive, but sound equal to a CD. mp3 files are smaller, download quicker and take up less room on your hard-drive. They're also the standard for iPods and other mp3 players. Also, these files are zipped, so you'll need a program like WinZip to unzip the files, once they're on your harddrive. Any problems just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org]
