Akira The Don VS CCHG – Happy When it Snows
From ATD20 Jan 29th 2010.
I think might have been the most fun I’ve had drawing this comic strip so far. Thanks for the opportunity gang!
Happy When it Snows, then. Do any of you know who CCHG are? Because I do not! I came across this amazing piece of music perusing Vice Magazine’s new flash player on their website. I was looking at flash players that morning, and happened upon Vice’s. The second song I heard was Chinaman Pappa by CCHG – it was perfect. Southern styled 808 drums married to music that sounded like tragic Georgio Moroder dreamscapes. Descending chords. I put it on repeat, sat in my chair by the window, rolled myself a zoot, opened the window, and wrote the song there and then, as snowflakes drifted into the room and mingled with the smoke. It was magical.
So shout out whoever play-listed the Vice flash player, and shout out CCHG, whoever you are. Thank you for the music. Oh, and shout out Sun On The Sand, who had it on their lovely site earlier this week.
