There are lots of songs about Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day, but there are no songs whatsoever about Pancake Day.
This Pancake Day (Today) the brilliant John Dredge and The Plinths have righted this wrong by releasing a brand new single entitled, appropriately enough, ‘Pancake Day’. It’s a celebration of excessive pancake consumption, and features a dance performed in the accompanying video by amateur terpsichorean John Dredge (you had to look that up, didn’t you) (it means dancer).
‘I personally guarantee that my ‘Pancake Dance’ will burn off all additional calories incurred from eating pancakes,’ says the alternative nutritionist and singer. ‘Of course it might not,’ he adds.
When Look-In Magazine expert and singer John Dredge met Doctor Doom expert and guitarist MJ Hibbett, a songwriting partnership was born. With the addition of Star Wars enthusiast Andy Harland on drums and mystery man Bob Burgons on bass, John Dredge and The Plinths emerged, closely followed by ‘The Emergency EP’ which has been featured on radio stations and podcasts around the country including BBC Introducing and Iain Lee’s Talk Radio show. This single is the long-awaited follow-up, with another EP due in the spring.
‘Pancake Day’ is available on iTunes, Amazon, and all download sites, as well as directly from the band via their Bandcamp site http://johndredgetheplinths.bandcamp.com.
PURE PANCAKE POP FOR NOW PEOPLE
