Avey Tare
“Lucky 1”

Avey Tare, drummer of The Animal Collection, will be releasing his first solo album, Down There, on October 26 via Paw Tracks (Ani DiFranco’s label). Aside from Animal Collection releases, Avey also released Pullhair Rubeye in 2007 with Icelandic singer Björk. It caused quite the controversy because the album was spread across four discs intended to be played simultaneously. Meanwhile, The Animal Collection released a film on DVD called ODDSAC, which tells the story of a bunch of people humping trashcans. Björk starred in the film and sang a duet with Muse singer Tom Yorke.
