Songs of Dunder
Gravitas Et Stultitia Arte Separare Non Possunt: 'Silliness and Seriousness cannot be artificially separated' This is our theory about what makes things interesting. When it's too serious, it gets tedious -- too silly and it becomes inane. To combine both then only seems natural and we figure there's a general principle involved. Dunderhead embeds serious musical content and philosophical ideas with not-so-serious musical and whimsical themes. It's fun. It's safe for kids (we like kids) and yet people's reaction have been 'these songs stick in your head and make you think' as well as 'what kind of music is this anyway?' This is our theme song. 'Songs of Dunder' has 15 songs, giving you over 40 minutes of 'hey, what kind of music is this anyway?' If this doesn't appeal to you, please consider buying this CD for someone else, someone a little off. We all know people like that. We actually are people like that, but the point is: people like that are very hard to find special little gifts of the 'where on earth did you find it' variety -- to which you reply with a smug look, pretending that it's all in the course of a normal day for adventurous people like yourself. Very few people have noticed that Songs of Dunder begins and ends in the key of 'D', just like the word 'Dunderhead'. As far as we are aware, this is the first time this has ever been done. Not even Rolling Stone magazine picked up on it. After your friend or family member has had it for a couple of months, you can say, 'did you notice...,' which of course is another opportunity to broadcast your formidable powers of observation. St. Frank, patron saint of dunderheads, thanks you for your kind support.
