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“. Great work from the rhythm section, […]

Get Right Back Where We Started From

In honor of our return to weekly Summer gigs at Bubala’s in Provincetown, here’s some a of the Philharmonic romping through Maxine Nightingale’s “Get Right Back Where We Started From” right across the street, in front of Spiritus Pizza, a week ago. We were playing on the sidewalk of as part of the closing party […]

Saw It Comin’ All Along (live 1999 @ The Midway)

“Saw It Comin’ All Along” -the Chandler Travis Philharmonic recorded live at the Midway in April, 1999, by Tom Lawlor -a vintage CTP slobfest; suggest heavy drinking prior to listening… is that a steel guitar in there somewhere? What th’?

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 […]

We’re now accepting orders for the Debut CD from the Chandler Travis Three-O, “This is What Bears Look Like Underwater” on our shopping page.

Nippertown (Albany, NY) – CD: THe Chandler Travis Philharmonic’s “Blows!”

Chandler Travis Philharmonic: Blows(Sonic Trout, 2010):

“Stupendous * Startling * Stunning * Zesty * Extraordinary * Jaw-Dropping * Moist”

Those are the bold-faced adjectives that are splayed across the inside cover of the latest digital-friendly disc that’s dropped from the slightly surreal mind of Chandler Travis and his equally off-center band. And the only one […]

Schenectady Daily Gazette – Chandler Travis promises outrageous event

by Michael Hochanadel

Edition: Schenectady/Albany; Final Section: D: Life & Arts Page: D2

The Chandler Travis Philharmonic may be about the most fun you can have with your clothes on — as goofy and musically various as NRBQ (with whom they often performed) at their peak — peaks, actually — NRBQ had about four peaks. […]
