The Singing Chair’s first record ’The City of Rats and Snakes’ will launch on Record Store Day 2012. This is the first record released by a Chair: a worldwide premiere!
After its celebrated performance on show at the Museum of Modern Art, its inspiring lecture at TEDxBrainport and several mind-blowing live performances at Utrecht National Film Festival, The Singing Chair is now releasing a 7" record!
Via The Singing Chair’s heartfelt, soulful poetics, he cries out his experiences and relations with his hometown. His one-of-a-kind voice makes his audience feel right at home, anywhere, anytime, as if talking to an old friend. This groundbreaking coming out will open doors for many Chairs to come, following the first, truly convincing, steps of The Singing Chair!
The colored vinyl comes with a killer b-side featuring a punked out version of the song and a spoken-word contribution by the legendary Texan singer Johnny Dowd.
This project would not have been possible without the people who made this record possible in the first place: Woody Veneman, lead singer of the Eindhoven based band Woody & Paul and Lucas Maassen, conceptual and practical designer
Don’t miss this unique release, the first record ever released by a chair!
