Prinzhorn Dance School
Prinzhorn Dance School release their new single 'Crackerjack Docker' on the 6th August 2007. Crackerjack Docker is taken from the upcoming (Prinzhorn Dance School self-titled) album. 'Crackerjack Docker' was written in a disused chapel (a space Prinzhorn Dance School call home) - beside a motorway, overlooking a dockyard.
'Crackerjack Docker' exemplifies the unique, raw and natural simplicity of the music that Tobin Prinz and Suzi Horn create. drums, bass and wiry guitar are enjoined in a delicate balancing act where what isn't happening, the space and silence, is just as important as what is.
'We wrote this song with the drums very much about work related noises. The drums are about hard graft. We did not hardly sleep when we made the record. It was non stop. We also spent a lot of time on the b-sides for this single. We try to make b-sides like a-sides but just on side b. It is not fair to buy a record and have a piece of crap on side b. Or some shitty remix of the a side.'
Mixed with 'incredibly respectful' help from James Murphy, Tim Goldsworthy and Eric Broucek in NYC; 'crackerjack docker' precedes the release of their eagerly anticipated album in august.
