PUTS on The Simpsons 20th ANN Special this sunday on FOXStarted 10 years ago by Thes One / toggle topic info
From an Email i just sent out:
Friends, Colleagues, Family
As unbelievable as it is for me to type, Mike and myself will be on the Simpsons this Sunday on FOX. And not any Simpsons episode, but the 20 year 450th episode hour long special directed by acclaimed director Morgan Spurlock. A handful of musicians who the cast, crew and I?m sure the esteemed Mr. Groening respect were asked to reinterpret the classic Danny Elfman/Alf Clausen orchestra composition that has become as much apart of American culture as our national anthem. We flew to New York and recorded our portion with the amazing Andrew W.K. In Manhattan right before we left for our Africa Tour. From what I understand, portions of the song were also recorded by the Harlem Gospel Choir, Moby and Phish. We are in pretty high company. To what extent we will be featured on the show I am not sure, but we made the final edit and have signed our releases, so don?t blink or you might miss us (though I haven?t seen it yet). For our part, we cut the Simpsons theme on vinyl (with the help of Pete Lyman) and I made a custom Homer label for the two existing copies of the record, and then Double K cut it up on camera with myself on the drum machine, while Andrew W.K. Played the piano.
Tune in Sunday at 8:30 immediately following the 450th episode for the special and watch for your boys!
Here?s a link to one of the various Press Releases floating around if you want to read more:
... dude, trouble breathing...

I"M SO HAPPY FOR YOU CATS. 2010 is gonna be a great year.
Can't wait for Chicago. The Fam awaits you.
Too Cool! Congrats on the major score... (pun intended)
We'll be watchin'
Oh, and Thes:
I hope people hear your Simpsons remix, say "d*mn, who was that?", find out, and buy a bunch of your records. I mean, I don't know how much exposure you'll really cop from this, but even if you get a few iTunes downloads, every little bit helps.
Here's to hoping!
Also, is your part of the remix going to be owned by 20th Century Fox, or can you release it to your adoring fans? I wanted to scoop it up without having to record it off the TV.
I'd love a copy of the special PUTS remix for the simpsons. I've been loving that show forever. Can't wait till sunday.
