MALADROITS UNION is Bogs Visionary Orchestra's second released. Bogs Visionary Orchestra combines the anthem like melodies of old-time country with indie grit and experimental niavity. Their songs hint at the surreal, yet are imbued with simplicity and heartfelt zeal. Bogs Visionary Orchestra is led by artist/performer A. Bogs. His Orchestra of friends include Bobby Antosca (bass), Jill Pittman (backing vocals), Timothy Dick (drums & backing vocals), Jose Delhart (lap steel, lead guitar and backing vocals). We believe ART IS FOR FOLKS, that the PROCESS is EQUAL to the PRODUCT, that EVERYONE is creative, and EVERYONE has something to GIVE! SOME WORDS FROM A. BOGS- No one would deny being a consumer. It's something we accept because it's so easy to do. We consume music, movies, books and many, many other things. Above being consumers we are creators. We have the ability to bring things into being. For every ten books we read, we can write our own short story. For every thirty songs we download we can hum our own tune. We are more than consumer we are creator! CREATE! DON'T JUST CONSUME! MALADROITS UNION Produced by A. Bogs Recorded at Modfa Studios, Brooklyn N.Y.
