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 […]

The Third Thing (home demo)

“The Third Thing“- Chandler demo, recorded at Fields Aplenty, Truro, MA, probably in May, 2017.

Most recent entry in our long running series of instrumentals with the word “thing” in the title, and definitely a ripoff of the general vibe of “The Third Man Theme”, which I’ve always loved; not sure yet what we’re going […]

July 4 hat trick three-way video spectacular!!

“Mid-morning in Moscow” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove, Provincetown, MA, Sept. 4, 2016, shot by Belinda. We’ve posted many different versions of this one, because we always have a great time playing it; with our first Herring Cove show of the season coming up this Wednesday, and this being another damn fine […]

A Brand-New Variety of Travis/Greenberger Collaboration!

 

“When It Started It Seemed Like a Joke but Then It Just Got Long and Boring” by David Greenberger, 21 June 2017 (ink and colored pencil on paper, image area 7.25 inches square.)

In a marked departure, this week’s Song of the Weak is a drawing by one of my favorite artists and […]

Catbirds at the Barley Neck

The Catbirds at the Barley Neck, May 12, 2017: “The Twirl”, “Do the Seesaw”, “Come On Home”, and “Institution Child”- recorded by Fred Boak.

Sometimes we sound best when we’re recorded worst on a really slow night. Not that this was such an occasion necessarily, I’m just observing that in passing.

Song of the Weak!!! […]

The Strongman of North American – unreleased mix

 

“The Strongman of North America” (Masterpiece Theater version) – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, recorded mostly by Ducky Carlisle and Joe Stewart at Dimension in J.P. (some overdubs recorded by C.T. at home), mixed by Ducky at Ice Station Zebra.

An alternate mix of one of my favorites from our latest, “Waving Kissyhead, Vol. 2 […]

I Saw a Picture of You

painting by Paulette Humanbeing

 

“I Saw a Picture of You“- the Chandler Travis Three-O at the Dreamaway Lodge in Becket, MA., April 14, 2014, recorded by The Valet, aka Fred Boak.

Another in the endless series of discarded songs. I actually like this one pretty well, but it’s always harder to find spots […]

Softly in the Night – Live Video

“Softly in the Night” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove, Sept. 4, 2016, shot (and originally broadcast live!)by Belinda.

I think this is the third song we’ve put up from this particular show, and we’ve put up other vids from previous Herring Cove shows -they’re just always a blast, and that whole sunset […]

Red Skies

“Red Skies” -the Chandler Travis Three-O, recorded at a soundcheck at Passim on Oct. 12, 2012, by Fred Boak.

I’d forgotten all about this one when it popped up the other day for no reason; one of the many songs that get worked up and discarded because they get overshadowed by more promising stuff… no […]
