"If Twitter is our spontaneous mind, then Dave Mandl is our Allen Ginsberg. #poetry"-Kenneth Goldsmith (aka Kenny G.)

Samples: - "Punk rock didn't prove that anyone who wants to can make a record. The new Kim Kardashian single did."
- "Pissed about the online application I just had to fill out. Name prefix choices were 'Mr,' 'Ms,' 'Mrs,' 'Miss,' and 'Dr.' But no 'Rahsaan.'"
- Only 1000 people bought the first Velvet Underground LP, but every one of them persuaded 10,000 other people to claim they'd also bought it."
- "Being forced to listen to Eric Clapton's 'Lay Down Sally': pairs boring White boogie rock with the classic 'lie'/'lay' grammatical mixup."

A mindblowing assemblage of tunes examining the peculiar human obsession with mimicking animals. No barnyard, jungle or petting-zoo left uninvestigated!

If the first word ever uttered by man was "ugh," then surely the second must have been "mruuuuuu!" How better to stop a wooly mammoth in its tracks than by speaking its own language. This Homo sapien urge to imitate our furry, feathered, and otherwise pelted friends - a sort of anthropomorphism in reverse - seems a natural ploy for hunting and gathering. But how about for picking and grinning? Mondo Animale presents a plethora of the finest examples of animalopoeia to occur in the realm of musical endeavor. We humans, it seems, have been squealing, clucking, and bleating to the beat ever since we put down the club and carried a tune.
