Clarence Ewing - The Million Year Trip writesFriday MP3 Shuffle - Happy Birthday Keith Flint Edition

Today we wish a very Happy Birthday to Keith Flint, lead vocalist for the band The Prodigy. This group helped pioneer the Big Beat electronic music sub-genre in the ‘90s with a sound that, like the mighty shark, hasn’t evolved much over time, mainly because it hasn’t had to. Their fundamentally loud, abrasive, scorching sound doesn’t lend itself to mainstream consumption. It's music for raving, and Flint’s Punk-as-@$!*, trouble-in-mind voice is a perfect front for the assault. Let’s wish him a Happy B-Day (and good luck with the band’s new album, The Day Is My Enemy, coming out next week) by taking your MP3 player, pressing the "shuffle" button, and sharing the first 10 songs you hear:

Clarence Ewing - The Million Year Trip writesIn Rotation: Makaya McCraven

One of Jazz music’s best drummers just released a new album on International Anthem. Makaya McCraven’s record takes a collage approach to this record by combining recordings of various performances around town into a looped, sampled, spliced tougher groove. Working alongside fellow Chicago bright stars like Matt Ulery and Marquis Hill, McCraven shows how improvised music is not just alive and well but thriving in the new century. McCraven’s new album In the Moment is currently in rotation on CHIRP Radio!

SKaiser writesQ&A with Pigeons Playing Ping Pong

Greg Ormont from one of the fastest growing emerging groups in the jam and festival scene, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, sat down to answer a few questions with CHIRP Radio. Don't miss them Thursday, March 26 at The Tonic Room. Doors open at 9:00 PM | Show at 10:00 PM

Greg Ormont: Lead Vocals | Rhythm Guitar

Jeremy Schon: Guitar | Vocals

Ben Carrey: Bass | Vocals

Alex Petropulos: Drumagic | Electro-Swag

CHIRP: How are you guys feeling at the Midwestern point of your tour?

Ormont: Exhausted, haha, and incredibly grateful. This month-long tour has felt more like a vacation than usual. We began in the Southeast, spent a weekend in Florida for AURA Music Festival where we played a late night set, and then spent a vacation day in New Orleans on the way to a two-week Colorado run. While out west, we got the chance to hit the hot springs in Steamboat Springs and some of us snowboarded and skied at Snowmass in Aspen. Now we’re trucking through the Midwest for some awesome shows on the way home to Baltimore. All of our shows this month have been explosive, complete with epic sit-ins and packed houses. We’re having a ton of fun.
