ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Honestly? Garbage Pizza is a big pile of virtually everything we've ever recorded over two years. The name suits it.

More to the point, Garbage Pizza catalogs our growth as a band, from our tentative beginnings at reinterpreting popular music (Burning Bridges), to our early originals (Writing a Book), to when Tami joined the band with her beautiful voice and amazing songs (Go), to our current sounds (Another Song). A handful of tracks were recorded for the soundtrack of an as-yet-unreleased documentary about the history of roleplaying games.

Spontaneity and improvisation are central to the sound and feel of our music. Some tracks on the album (Spaghettio, Tami's Mind) were completely improvised. The Rainbow Song was our first ever performance of that song as a band. Humor is also key to our music, although we're not necessarily a "comedy band". It can be the snark of Writing a Book, the double entendre of The Beaver Song, or the sheer silliness of Peach Cobbler.

Sometimes, radical reinterpretation is needed to get to the heart of a song. Burning Bridges finds the simple blues buried under the massive orchestrations of the original, and Greensleeves touches the angry, wounded heart of a song known mostly as bland, harmless folk. When we're at our best, we play songs in such a way that you'll never hear the originals the same again.

Garbage Pizza is a album full of surprises. We had a great time making it, and hope you have a great time listening!

Fun and Strange
The Feng Shui Ninjas are serious musicians who don't always take themselves seriously. Garbage Pizza is well produced and well performed, with some good covers and emotional originals. Celtic and country with a little bit of weird; to play their description game: They sound like Poi Dog Pondering as produced by Syd Barrett. Sort of.
