Fox on the Town animation by Mindy Fisher

Our friend Mindy Fisher created a fun animation for our interpretation of the old Folk chestnut, Fox on the Town. It debuted Friday night at our CD release show at The Old Town School of Folk Music, and is now available on the interwebs for your viewing pleasure.

Mr. Billy Oh

Paul and the Suitbass

Our friend Mindy Fisher is working on a short animated film set to our version of The Fox, from our forthcoming fourth CD, Please Punch Richard for Me. Pictured are our own Paul Wargaski and Billy Oh. Paul is playing a cartoon version of his homemade suitbass.

The Fox is an interesting piece. Though it’s been widely recorded since the postwar folk revival, it has roots that run quite a bit deeper. There is a 15th-century manuscript in the British Museum with an early version of the lyrics. There’s an article Paul ran across from the Journal of American Folklore with some excerpts from the old text:

It fell ageyns the next nyght
the fox yede to with all his myghte,
with-outen cole or candelight,
whan that he cam vnto the toowne

The headbobber

The headbanger

Our friend Mindy Fisher is working on a short animation to accompany our recording of The Fox. She’s made an animated version of each of us. She came to one of our shows to see how we moved onstage. Scott was the headbanger. I was the headbobber.

Our friend Mindy Fisher is working on an animated interpretation of ‘The Fox on the Town,’ a traditional tune we’ve recorded for our forthcoming CD. She’s posted a few screenshots on her blog, and they’re beautiful. Her drawing of the eponymous fox is below:
