I Met the Walrus

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrator James Braithwaite have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit and timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short.

Mandrill – Check out this 1973 footage of “Fencewalk.”

Their debut 1971 self titled album is killer. 70s collaborative soul/funk with more bite than Rufus, maybe Cymande-ish. The first song off the record has Fela-esque horns, and hectic poly-rhythmic percussion…this record is a killer and needs to be purchased….and then fondled.

If you like this sound, do your part (not your hair) and hit the band’s website (right here click me) and buy the record!

here is a small but relevant part from an older interview —-> LINK

How long have you been emceeing and were you at any point intimidated by it?

Karriem Riggins: I do so much it’s kind of hard to stay on one thing because I’m always doing everything. Common would be working on his album and I would come up with a chant or something, recently I started writing to whatever beat that inspires me and I got a lot of rhymes man (laughs). I met up with Madlib and he gave me 7 beat cd’s with 50 beats on each. So we decided to do that album together and we have five albums in the can. We have five jazz albums and we’re trying to finish the Supreme Team album. Madlib and I actually have a jazz group call the Jahari Masamba Unit and it’s coming out on Stones Throw.

the goose drank wine
the monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
the line broke, the monkey got choked
and they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

clap pat – clap pat – clap pat – clap slap
clap pat! clap your hand…
pat it on your partner’s hand…
right hand clap pat! clap your hand…
cross it with your left arm
pat your partner’s left palm
clap pat! clap your hand…
pat your partner’s right palm
and a right palm again
clap slap! clap your hand…
slap your thigh and sing a little song go…

my mother told me
if i was goody
that she would buy me
a rubber dolly
my auntie told her
i’d kissed a soldier
now she won’t buy me
a rubber dolly!

the goose drank wine
the monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
the line broke, the monkey got choked
and they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

clap clap!
clap your hands and prepare to pat

take your right arm
pat your partner’s palm with your right palm

clap!
take your hand back and clap
clap!
take your right arm
cross your right arm
with your left arm pat
your partner’s left palm
with your left palm clap!
now back with a clap
take your hand to your palm
and slap your thigh
and watch the fun materialize
as you sing this little song:

my mother told me

that she would buy me
a rubber dolly
my auntie told her
i’d kissed a soldier
now she won’t buy me
a rubber dolly!
