Bud and Froony

 

“Thank You Song” – Ct demo, circa 2008, recorded at Kelp Manor. From the new album “Bud and Froony“, a collection of songs written and recorded over the years for various Travis family occasions, most of which started life as Chandler demos, but the Incredible Casuals and the Chandler Travis Philharmonic also make […]

Long Live The Midway! (A New Live Album)

Ok, we’ve played at the Midway literally zillions of times, and now quite suddenly (at least in my semi-functioning brain) it’s the Midway’s 30th anniversary, and of course I didn’t do anything in advance, because I wanted to make sure the fucking thing was actually going to happen, and now it is, and I’m kind […]

I Got To Move (Philharmonic version)

“I Got To Move” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, recorded live at the Midway by yours truly using my patented Horrend-O-phonic sound process (a beat up old Sony portable cassette deck) sometime in the late nineties. and originally featured on RadioBall #4, “Miss America Presents the Chandler Travis Philharmonic“.

Boo! (A Halloween Trifecta)

 

“Other Thing” -the Chandler Travis Philharmonette from “RadioBall 23- Live at Bubala’s”, recorded by the Valet, I’m guessing, in the summer of 2003.

It being Halloween week n all, thought we’d bring back one of our creepiest efforts, though this is an early and relatively sprightly version (nowadays, we play it a lot […]

The Noise (Boston) – Review of This is What Bears Look Like Underwater

 

THE CHANDLER TRAVIS THREE-O This Is What Bears Look Like Underwater 14 tracks

On opening track “Little Things,” which sets the tone for much of what is to follow, it seems like Fred Boak, John Clark, Berke McKelvey, and Chandler Travis don’t so much rock out as commit acts of vaguely rock-like instrumental […]

Chandler’s on a New Record

… and when we say “record” we really mean a “record” – seven inches of pretty purple vinyl perfectly pressed with a little hole in the center to be played at 33 & 1/3 RPM. The Petite 7 Inch Record is a record about lovingly assembled by our dear friends at our favorite radio show, […]

SoundOut Consumer Insight Report – “Anne”

  Below are highlights from the “SoundOut Consumer Insight Report” on the Chandler Travis Philharmonic’s recording of “Anne” (This was a you-get-the-first-one-free situation, presented by the always heinous Sonicbids organization, the folks who made it possible for artists to pay people to reject them who used to do it for free); for no particular […]
