Pull the kids up on your lap, turn up the volume on your computer, and enjoy this performance from cartoonist/musician Archer Prewitt, live on "Chic-A-Go-Go," the cutest all-ages dance show on cable access in Chicago.
And while you're at it, and if the kids haven't squirmed away yet, check out this silly video from John & Mark, featuring artwork by Mr. Prewitt. In fact, it's the same artwork that adorns the album John & Mark's Children's Record on Tight Ship Records. You can even download 16 pages of Archer's animal drawings for your kids to color in!
By the way, that "John & Mark" happens to be John Upchurch and Mark Greenberg (also seen "drumming" with Archer on "Chic-A-Go-Go"), and Tight Ship Records happens to be ran by one Mr. Barry Phipps. Yes, folks, it's the closest thing we have to a reunion by The Coctails until I raise enough money to get them to play my next birthday party.
(Incidentally, The Coctails' Popcorn box set? Features photography by your FLOG host Mike Baehr! Also? The Coctails have collaborated in the past with Fantagraphics' very own Dame Darcy! It's a very small world of awesomeness.)
