Dave Criddle's "Flabbergasted"

Jude Hayden and Dave Criddle met at Miami University in 1989 and played epic, acoustic duo shows for the next decade, playing an eclectic mix of Prince, XTC, Elvis Presley, They Might Be Giants, The Coasters and Robyn Hitchcock, among others.  

In about 1995, Dave started getting serious about recording and they created two home recorded albums and an EP with surprisingly high production value, especially for the early days of the home recording revolution. 

The second record by their band, The Bees, attracted some attention in the local Cincinnati magazine, City Beat, bringing them a drummer for live shows. In the early 2000’s, they did wildly popular cover shows with 2 hours of David Bowie – Ziggy Stardust era music, with full makeup and androgynous stage costumes. In this episode, Michael talks with Dave about the Beach Boys-inspired song “Flabbergasted,” off of the Bees’ album, Cosmonaut.
