ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fat Pigeon is a duo. We do not rehearse, and we often play songs we don't know on instruments we can't play. This album is no exception. It was produced with a lot of love and affection, but a minimal amount of skill. We hope it finds a special place in your loins.

With PDG33BFS, all we had to go on was one part of a book of Bohemian Folk Duets for guitar (student and teacher - we only had the student part). Most of these songs were done in one take. Sometimes fewer.

Here And There: Featuring Pigeon Pete on Jew's Harp, and guest artist Pigeon Jess on tambourine
I Have Black Horses: Featuring Alexander Pigeon on trumpet
Oh Love Love: Alexander Pigeon's sensitive banjo playing will tug at your heartstrings
Hey-ho Geese: Pigeon Pete demonstrates his kazoo prowess
Here Comes The Postman: The Postman, of course, is an integral part of Czech culture
The Girl With The Blue Eyes: Care was taken to ensure the Stylophone was not quite tuned.
It's Raining It's Raining It's Pouring: Off our beaks on cheap Czechoslovakian speed. Forthcoming single
Look After Me Mother Dear: Featuring real diseases
Young Girls Walking Along The Road: Gaily on their way to the sweet shop, probably, or to buy some Rawlplugs
Andulichko, Hello: Even we have trouble listening to this one
The Moon Is Shining: The sheet music indicated this should be "Played with thumbs", so we did. No fingers were involved in the making of this track
When I Was Wandering: Fat Pigeon laughs in the face of click tracks
The Little Red Rose: Pigeon Pete on trombone, with Alexander Pigeon on upside down guitar
Around Trebon: Book now to avoid disappointment
The Shepherdess: *COMMENT REMOVED ON ADVICE OF OUR LAWYERS*
Oh The Dew Is Falling: Yes, he is
When I Used To Visit You: Once again, Alexander Pigeon's musicality on the banjo shines through
When I Took The Geese To The Pasture: The classic livestock powerballad
The Pipes Were Playing At Pobuda: for Eb alto sax and Bb trumpet
Hey, My Battle Axe: For those about to coo, we salute you
On The Squire's Meadow: There was no electricity in the meadow, so we couldn't plug our instruments in
Shepherds, You Rascals: Featuring an Erhu (Chinese violin) which we think may actually have been meant for ornamental rather than musical purposes
Sleep, My Angel: Why won't you sleep? Sleep, damn you!
Little John, You Are Naughty: One of those happy occasions when Czech, Slovak and English work together in perfect harmony
In The Open Field: Again, the Erhu; with the sound of distant drums. And a frog.
The Gosling's Flight: Fat Pigeon feels the need for speed. Possibly the cheap Czechoslovakian speed we bought before recording track 7
The Black Fleece On The White Sheep: A powerful comment on racism amongst livestock
Anichka My Sweet: Featuring genuine sugar.
I Love You Dearest John: Pigeon Pete speaks to you through Alexander's Trumpet
My Love Took A Peacock To The Pasture: NB - never under any circumstances take your peacock to the same pasture as the geese. Don't say we didn't warn you.
You Wait, I'll Tell: Translates from the original as "Wait - I'll Tell You"
When I Sowed Wheat: That's real wheat you're listening to there, folks.
Whose Are These Geese: Fat Pigeon answers all the important questions.

Hey-Ho Nice!
Yeah, I like this. Very cool. As soon as I've sold a few bits on eBay, I'll probably buy the whole thing.

Bohemia at its best
This is such an exciting album. Adrenalised guitar, killer tunes reinvented for the western ear, and the singer's inimitable voice. At 33 songs, it's perhaps a little on the long side, but I guess that's forgivable for a debut. Every home should have this.

Touching
This is a heartfelt submission, by a collection of musicians who transcend genre, and posess a unique command over their instruments.
At times haunting (see 'oh love, love'), but never losing touch with their audience (see 'its raining, its raining, its pouring')
Compromise is not a word i would associate with this album.
Subsequently, it deserves a place in the collection of anyone who considers themselves a connoisseur of the form - the art of touching an audience with aural expression.
I myself, have certainly been touched.
