Horse Feathers &Animal Crackers-A Tribute To Queen

Horse Feathers &Animal Crackers-A Tribute To Queen

There are precious few bands that can inspire enough artists to fill a 2-disc tribute. Queen is one of those bands. From Deena Shoshkes’ (of The Cucumbers) countrified version of “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” to The Serpenteens hard rock take on “Calling All Girls”, Horse Feathers & Animal Crackers features the most diverse collection of musicians yet on a Main Man Records release. Richie Ranno (from Starz), Derwood Andrews (from Generation X), Dennis Dunaway (from the original Alice Cooper group) and Cheetah Chrome (from The Dead Boys) are just a few of the names you may recognize alongside Main Man’s own Frankenstein 3000, Bad Biscut, True Love, Shawn Mars and The Easy Outs.

There are plenty of Queen “hits” on Horse Feathers & Animal Crackers (like the one-two punch of “We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions” that opens the collection and the re-imagining of “Another One Bites The Dust”), but some of the real treats are the deeper album cuts that were chosen (”Tenement Funster”, “The Loser In The End”, “Sleeping On The Sidewalk” and “Drowse” to name but a few). All four of Queen’s songwriters are represented: Freddie Mercury’s “Mustapha”, Brian May’s “Sail Away Sweet Sister”, John Deacon’s “You’re My Best Friend” and Roger Taylor’s “I’m In Love With My Car” are just some of the highlights. Every single song on Horse Feathers & Animal Crackers stands on it’s own, but together they create a true tribute to one of the greatest bands in the history of modern music.
