Superfantastics Recording Session!

Sunday I was lucky enough to participate in a Superfantastics recording session!
The fantastically fun-filled duo were recording their version of "Do They Know It's Christmas (Feed The World)" for their upcoming Christmas album.

Much like the original 1984 version, the Superfans gathered a bunch of Halifax's best and brightest talent to lend their vocal abilities to the tune.
The session included Jenocide's Jen Clarke, The Lodge/The Beginners' Mike O'Neil, Myles Deck & The Fuzz's Myles Deck & Jordan Oakie, and Heavy Meadows' Virgil Muir and his wife Natalie. Oh, and me. Much UNlike the original 1984 Bob Geldof-produced version, there was no animosity between George Michael & Boy George, nor was there mountains of coke and gallons of vodka. There was Party Mix & apples though. Yum.

Here are some pictures:

The album is due out in December, and in typical Superfantastics style they're putting together a sweet video, and once the it's done they'll be putting it on the ol' Internet coupled with a link to donate funds to Feed Nova Scotia.

I also have it on good authority that the band will debut the track on Halifax Is Burning before the holiday season is upon. Stay tuned!
