Who is Dance Dance Kitten? Although What Dance Dance Kitten Did On Her Holiday is listed as the third album in the series, it was in fact the first to be written. The name was, I think, inspired by two Japanese fads: Dance Dance Revolution, a video arcade dancing game, and Hello Kitty, Sanrio's horrifyingly cute flagship character.

I think of Dance Dance Kitten as a little girl - I picture her about four or five years old, with long dark hair and enormous eyes - who loves music, and loves to dance. I can't quite make up my mind whether she is a real kitten, a normal girl, or an anime-style catgirl. Whatever she is, she is Dance Dance Kitten.

In this album, DDK (for short) goes on holiday with her parents, first to Rio de Janiero, and then north to New Orleans. This gave me the excuse to play first with various Latin styles of music (using Acid Latin), and then with the excellent Vince Andrews loops for the second half.

Careful observers may note that the track names go from 8 (Peaches and Cream) to A (Rainy Day). What happened to 9? It was intended to be a number called Caramel Salsa - Chocolate's little sister - but I couldn't quite make it work. One day I may come back to it.

1 WOW, this is cool. I wish I had speakers on my 'puter so I could give a listen to yer stuff. Is it a big honkin' project to put this facility on my blog? I'd love to post some of my crap!

2 It's not that hard. I can give you an FTP login so you can upload the files, and then you just link to them in your blog entry. Just how much crap do you have? ;)

3 A lot! ...about 230 cassette tapes that I've been recording (solo and band) since 1977 (I was 14 then). I recently recorded them to CD, probably more than 100 total. Of course, if I were put stuff on the web I would probably just keep it to more (and probably less) than the contents of a 10-CD box retrospective that I compiled about two years ago. Yep... I got a lot o' crap!

4 Wow! Cool! 10 CDs worth of decent quality MP3s will be around a gigabyte, so that's no problem. If you wanted to put all 100 CDs up, I'd have to clean the place first :) I'll set things up for you and email you the details.
