What's New at Crabid?
2/11/2009: David Minnick was interviewed for All About Jazz. Click here to read the whole interview.
12/12/2008: The Sursiks' 3rd cd, entitled Christmas in March is now available through CDBaby. "Christmas in March", uses found recordings from tv (shows, commercials, infomercials, news), radio (dj banter, news, weather, interviews), self-help and self-hypnosis recordings, children's lps, religious recordings, political speeches, stand-up comedy routines and more as the source material for its songs.
The original recordings are taken apart and re-arranged in order to create new absurd, funny and bitingly satirical narratives which creatively reflect on the very material from which they're made.
But then, The Sursiks take it one step further: The spoken parts are rhythmically and melodically tied to the musical arrangements, and throughout most of the songs they RHYME! "Christmas in March" is a collection of pop-culture mashups which imitate the rhythm, phrasing and rhyme schemes of poetry and songs, set to music by a real band!

3/28/2007: The Sursiks are at it again! Their second release, Lydia Grace, is available now at CDBaby! "Lydia Grace" is a collection of 13 songs actually written and sung by a 3-year-old girl. She was not told what to sing, or even what to sing about. If you loved the first Sursiks CD, but didn't want to play it when the kids were home (on account of all the swearing and the naked guy on the cover), you'll love Lydia Grace (and your kids will too).
