    E060 - Producing the Revolution (REVOLUTION IN MOTION Chapter 5)

    TOUCHDOWNS ALL DAY w/ JON BARBER & MAX DAWSON.
    E060 - REVOLUTION IN MOTION Chapter 5 - Touchdowns All Day is proud to present the final installment of our five-part series exploring the making of the band’s long-awaited “Space Opera.” In this episode, REVOLUTION IN MOTION producer Derek "Cloudchord" VanScoten joins Max to talk about his creative collaboration with The Disco Biscuits. Derek first joined us on the pod way back in episode 23 to discuss his role as coach and technical advisor for the 2019 incarnation of Tractorbeam. Since then, his involvement with the Biscuits has only deepened, first via a trio of Tractorbeam-inspired instrumentals, and more recently through his production work on the band's new album. Derek walks us through his history with the Biscuits, his role in helping to break down barriers between musical genres and scenes, his philosophy as a record producer, and his favorite tracks on the album. As a prolific recording artist who's released countless albums, EPs, and singles spanning myriad genres and formats, Derek is uniquely qualified to put the Biscuits' evolving sound into a broader context.
    REVOLUTION IN MOTION is now available wherever you stream or download music! CDs and 180-gram vinyl double LPs are now available in the band's official store. Check out the full-length animated movie introducing viewers to the world of Polyfuzia, Fuzzies, Space Trains, royal family drama, and the Freeze of Times Square.
    Catch the Disco Biscuits on the third leg of their nationwide Why We Dance Tour. For tour dates and ticket sales, including special VIP packages, check out http://discobiscuits.com/site/shows/.
    This summer, The Disco Biscuits make their triumphant return to Lafayette, NY for the second BISCOLAND festival. Stay tuned to the band's Instagram, Facebook, and X accounts for more details, including on-sale dates and support acts.

Stop being a wook! I’m so mean I make medicine sick. 5 stars all day. Enjoy.

Golden age of Bisco

Intelligent, informative, entertaining analysis. I have learned as much about the creative process as I have about the biscuits in the last few episodes. Knowing why you’re hearing what your hearing makes listening to Bisco a transcendent experience!
