Samamidon Dance Contest!!!

To celebrate Samamidon’s debut video, “Tribulation,” Plug Research is holding its very own dance contest! In the vid, Sam does a super cool dance- we think it’s gonna be the next Chicken Noodle Soup- and we want to see you do it too! Therefore, in Sam’s next video for his track “Louis Collins,” we want to see your best attempts at it. We’re going to edit together as many of your dances as possible for the vid. Here’s what you need to do:

1. Watch Samamidon’s “Tribulation” video and learn Sam’s dance (starts at 2:28)- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_CoYyxxV24

2. Listen to “Louis Collins,” downloadable here:
http://www.plugresearch.com/louiscollins.mp3

3. Record yourself doing Sam’s dance along to “Louis Collins” and send it our way. It’s that simple!

CDs/DVDs preferred. All videos become property of Plug Research and cannot be returned.

Plug Recipes Presents- Samamidon

In what I really hope will become an ongoing feature, here’s our first ever artist recipe. It comes courtesy of Samamidon! Check it out:

Samamidon’s recipe for Falsehearted Chicken

- Offer the chicken wings of a beaten yellow gold if it doesn’t crow the next day. If it does crow, kill it.
- Cut the chicken into small, bitesize pieces.
- Marinate it in soy sauce.
- Stir fry it with:
some broccoli, some onion, some green pepper, some garlic, some bok choy.
- Serve over white rice

Says Sam: “This will be a falsehearted blow to the ancient american folk tradition, which would mock such hippie fare in favor of KFC. Simultaneously, it is a touching homage to the hippie folk revival of the ’60s and ’70s. In fact, I learned this recipe from my mother.”

Samamidon on YouTube

Spread the word! Samamidon’s “Tribulation” is up on YouTube for your viewing pleasure! We suggest you learn Sam’s dance. For now, let’s call it the “Tribulation Trot.”

A very Samamidon Monday

Samamidon’s But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted will be our first release of 2007, and we couldn’t be more excited to be starting our year with them. One of our favorite blogs, the always reliable Said the Gramophone, shares our affection. They did a wonderful post on the guys today:

On top of that, we have more Samamidon treats. This is their first video (yes, there’s more to come), for the song “Tribulation,” directed by the brilliant Ezra Caldwell. We think Sam’s dance in this video will overtake “Chicken Noodle Soup” as the latest craze.
