this recording has a funny story, because ben fired himself from drums. lots of journalists have asked: "what is the difference between a dresden dolls song and an amanda fucking palmer song?" and my answer is that there is none. it's mostly coincidence. i assumed this song was going to go on the WKAP record and so did ben. and then we tracked it with his band, and ben listened to it a few times and said "you know what? i'm firing myself as your drummer for this song. viglione will do a better job. make it a dolls song." ladies and gentlemen, ben folds. you gotta love him.
My guitarist/synthist & horn arranger/conductor Chad Raines just put out an album. If you've seen us on tour, you know this: The sweet sounds of THE SIMPLE PLEASURE will make you dance your ass off!! Amanda Palmer
Kim and I go way back. She's played shows with me all over the world, and I was on a 7" record she Kickstarter'd a few years ago. Her new album is an electro-space-pop love letter to the cosmos. Amanda Palmer
