2001-Apr-18: Sir Paul and the Super Furry Animals

A new item is about to be added to the collaborations list.   Sir Paul's unique talent will be heard on the Welsh group Super Furry Animals' new album, Rings Around The World.  He has worked with the band before on a track for his Liverpool Sound Collage. For this new recording, Sir Paul joined their string section on a track titled Receptacle for the Respectable.  His instrument?  A stick of celery!  Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys explains: "He's on the record chewing celery in time to the rhythm of Receptacle for the Respectable.    That's a song in four parts, it goes from 60s harmony pop to early 70s glam rock in the Bacharach balladry then goes death metal. It's not an obvious single."

This is not the first time Sir Paul's veggie chomping skills have appeared on a recording.  His chewing can be also be heard on the Beach Boys' Smiley Smile album (April, 1967) on the Vegetables track .

The Furry Animals Rings Around The World CD/DVD will be released on July 16.
