Track of the Day: Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan

Posted By on Fri, Apr 17, 2009 at 2:12 PM

File this Florida songwriting duo under: I'll Have a Double Shot of Whatever They're Having. I mean when was the last time you had so many songs about chickens at your fingertips? Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan were born to duet together--legend has it they popped out of their mammas in the same Buffalo, NY hospital. The couple's co-written songs hit the country charts 15 times between 1969 and 1975, but the real nuggets have found their ways onto various comps over the ages. I stumbled onto Jack & Misty through Nashville Sputnik , which has an awesomely absurd song about a chicken that looks like Hitler ("Dance of the Living Dead Chickens"). I couldn't find a legal version of that one to post online today, though, so instead I'll send you here, where you can give a listen to some other fowl ditties, including "The Legendary Chicken Fairy" and "Tennessee Bird Walk."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
