Rooftop Comedy To Release New Album From Satiric Folk Duo Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits
November 28, 2012
San Francisco – November 2012 –
Rooftop Comedy Productions, the leading interactive media producer of original comedy content, is excited to announce the release of Trainwreck To Narnia
, by Bay Area satiric folk duo Bobby Joe Ebola and The Children MacNuggits
. The album will be available December 18th via retailers including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and RooftopComedy.com and will also be available to stream on Pandora, Spotify, and Last.fm, among others.
Bobby Joe Ebola and The Children MacNuggits began in 1995, in a trash-strewn fast-food parking lot in Pinole, CA. Guitarist Dan Abbott
and singer Corbett Redford
rose from their roots as a satiric folk rock band that played for friends to a duo who tour more than 100 days per year with hilarious and sometimes frightening acoustic performances. The MacNuggits have gathered loyal legions of fans with their infamous combination of searing social satire, soaring harmonies, outlandish and shocking truths, and poop jokes.
The band’s initial release, Two Cats
was circulated fervently while they were still in high school, and was played frequently on Dr. Demento’s radio show as well as college radio stations up and down the West coast. Following their debut, BJE released a few other titles before disbanding for a 9-year hiatus in 2000. Reuniting in 2009, Abbott and Redford picked up right where they left off, with an EP (Freaky Baby
) and full length album (F
) which brought with it their first music video. This year has seen the band ready their new album, Trainwreck To Narnia by releasing a new music video every month and hitting the road yet again.
The genre-bending pair write “pretty songs about terrible things”. With a sarcastic wink in their eye they recall surreal moments on the road, offer commentary on today’s economy and health care systems and tackle the great censorship debate – all while poking fun of the sacred and exposing our society’s flaws and insecurities.
