ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Run Turkey Run by The Rob Beadle Triangle Band is a cheesily cheerful Christmas cracker served on a fruity compote of Latino infused beats with a darkly humourous stuffing.

The English tradition of eating a huge Roast Turkey at Christmas is warped horribly by this song about a boy who ends up eating his favourite pet. Eeuw!

The music fuses Latin-American and Afro-Cuban influenced rhythms with Western Pop and Rock idioms - seasonal bells, both sleigh and tubular, dance hand-in-hand with the guiro and clave.

Lounge stylee vocals croon away over the verses and choruses, punctuated by altogether more malevolent bridge sections.

To close, a short, tongue-in-cheek guitar solo accompanied by angelic backing vocals takes us up to the gothic requiem finale.

You don't believe all this fits into 3 1/2 minutes? You should hear the remix!

Imagine "Stairway To Heaven" compressed into three-and-a-half minutes
The most fantastic record with an unapologetic Christmas theme you're likely to hear over the hols. Imagine "Stairway To Heaven" compressed into three-and-a-half minutes and sung in a splendidly over-the-top plummy lounge stylee. What's more, unlike most tracks with an, erm, humerous theme, it doesn't sound shite after two plays

Buzz Magazine

Will probably get them on every new Christmas album from here on in
Hee hee hee. A song about murdering turkeys for Christmas dinner to a tune of gentle lounge lizard style vocals and seasonal bells and chimes. It's daft, it's silly but it will probably get them on every new Christmas album from here on in. Rating: Fab

A must for the festive season
It's only September and this little gem has landed on my desk. One of the most enjoyable comedy tracks I have heard in a very long time. A must for the festive season

TDB Magazine

Better than Cliff Richard's paltry (Poultry - geddit?) annual effort

I LOVE THIS SONG! I play it every year to my students and we do a turkey dance to it! Can you please please please send me the music video. I could only find 17 seconds of it on YOUTUBE. My seventh grade students would LOVE IT!
