Wee Hairy Beasties
by Wee Hairy Beasties
You may think that all we chicks do on any given day is read silly books and eat sprinkled donuts. And you would mostly be right. But every now and then, we chicks get a bee in our bonnet to shake our tail feathers and our groove things and our whatnots. And when we do, we crank up ANIMAL CRACKERS by Wee Hairy Beasties for delicious, romp-stomping tracks like Flies on My Taters, Ragtime Duck, and A Newt Called Tiny ("I call him Tiny because he's my newt.")
Featuring Kelly Hogan, Devil in a Woodpile, and British punk rockers Jon Langford and Sally Timms of Mekons fame, these Wee Hairy Beasties know how to raise the roof and rock the roost. Kids will eat up these jiggle-wiggle songs like coco pops while parents fall to their knees in gratitude for a children's music CD that doesn't induce nausea after more than one listen.
If you're anywhere near Chicago, check out Wee Hairy Beasties LIVE at Lollapalooza (Kidzapalooza Stage) at Grant Park on Saturday, August 4. At least one chick will be there cutting a rug with her chiclets. Put your boogie-woogie pants on and join the fun!
