We're going to have a great deal of fun! The Bran Flakes combine sound-collage with live instrumentation resulting in a beat oriented blend of exotica, easy listening, children's music and experimentation, often with a humorous effect. They are sonic scavengers, recycling petroleum-based audio storage media, and carefully scouring records and tapes for aural delights. The Bran Flakes believe that every record has at least ONE redeeming quality. They take these quality gems, maybe a snare drum or a man yelling "buttermilk," a bird chirping or a crispy bit of record crackle, and mix them into a very musical type of sound collage, conjuring up happy memories of your first kiss, the experience of getting a new puppy or the childhood excitement of going to the fair and having cotton candy on a cool autumn day.
In 1999 The Bran Flakes scored their first radio success hitting the top 200 on the CMJ charts
with the album, "Hey Won't Somebody Come And Play". Today The Bran Flakes can be heard on hundreds of college and independent radio stations worldwide and they have released a number of compact discs on various labels and independently on their imprint "Happi Tyme Records". In the studio and on releases the band consists of Otis Fodder and Mildred Pitt, with additional appearances by Susan DeLint, The GRDNR, and many special guests.
The Bran Flakes live performances transform into a circus, with audience participation, dancing animals and video collage. At the end of each show, large paper mache heads are available for the audience to take home for FREE.
