"THE GREATEST CHRISTMAS SINGLE OF ALL TIME" - SoundsXP.com
Dean Sobers & Matt Kaufman as Language of Prairie Dogs made music from 1999 to 2008. We recorded one single, Lone Giant, and released it at Xmas 2008. Then we split up. We have re-released it every Xmas since then. In 2010 we wanted to put it on vinyl but we only had the one side, so we asked our friends The Loves to write the BB-side. They did, and then they split up, too.
COMING IN 2017: The Water Boatman, the début album from Language of Prairie Dogs, to be released barely 18 year after we formed and a mere eight years after we split up. Recording began in 2011. It's really coming along now...
Lone Giant release history:
Xmas 2008: digital download on Bandcamp only, plus silly music video.
Xmas 2009: the same.
Xmas 2010: ltd. 7" vinyl (run of 200), split double B-side with The Loves.
Xmas 2011: the same.
Xmas 2012: probs a more sensible music video (NB. this never happened)
Xmas 2013: iPad app? Sutin, anyway. (NB. this never happened either)
Xmas 2014: Available once more on all good digital platforms including iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and Deezer. Shazam and Siri should be able to identify the songs if you ask them nicely. The music videos for both tracks (LG created in 2008; MF created in 2010) are now on the Brown Dwarf Vimeo page. Despite being the fifth Xmas since the limited run of 200 7" vinyl records were created, there are still well over 50 available. To buy. For money.
Xmas 2015: got bored by this point; we simply tweeted about it.
Xmas 2016: Elise Bramich has crafted us a stunning geometric music video. Go watch on Vimeo now: bit.ly/No1XmasVimeo. Thanks, Elise!
