Free Cheeseburger & Fries MP3s
In preparation for the opening date of the Cheeseburger & Fries play being announced very soon, we're cooperating with Creeps Records to release the original musty old Cheeseburger & Fries cassette recordings on archive.org's Open Source Audio project.
You can click here to peruse the Cheeseburger & Fries mp3 files made available for free online.
Jeffrey Scott "Cheeseburger" Holland and J.T. "Fries" Dockery made hundreds of raw, obnoxious, primitive recordings between 1995-2002 as a street-busking duo, whose musical principles often including making up spontaneous stream-of-consciouness songs on the spot. All their performances (which were recorded on low-budget handheld tape recorders) are being preserved and archived today by Creeps Records and The Telecrylic Foundation.
Catclaw will be staging Holland's play about his street-musician years this summer, and more information will be announced here very shortly.
