Fat Pigeon is a duo. We do not rehearse, and we often play songs we don't know on instruments we can't play. This album is no exception. It was produced with a lot of love and affection, but a minimal amount of skill. We hope it finds a special place in your loins.
With PDG33BFS, all we had to go on was one part of a book of Bohemian Folk Duets for guitar (student and teacher - we only had the student part). Most of these songs were done in one take. Sometimes fewer.
