steronoknex asked: Where can I find the original songs used for the "chicken and cheese" remixes by nero's day at disneyland?
Short question, but necessary(?) long answer.
The Nero’s Day At Disneyland “Chicken & Cheese” tracks are actually covers of Foot Village, not remixes. We commissioned a few dozen bands to cover this song and then we made “It’s A Small World” style medleys out of them for the finale of our album ‘Anti-Magic’. We actually got so much material that the vinyl, cd, cassette, and itunes versions of these medleys are completely different bands. Since we had to cut up the covers so much for this, we shared all the full covers, along with the practice space recording we sent to bands as a reference at the Free Music Archive.
The finished cd version of the Chicken & Cheese medley can be heard on our bandcamp. At some point I guess we should put the vinyl, cassette, and itunes versions of the medley on the bandcamp too…. if I have the master files anywhere (oops!).
Hope this helps?

I remember when we performed this song at a house party in Oakland. People were going nuts moaning along with us from the get go. The moment we brought the beat in, people started diving into our drums. I was so worried someone would puncture a lung or something. Main damage though was to my glasses, as usual.
