There’s a new and wildly exciting movement happening in music. It began with music recording software and laptop computers eliminating the need for expensive recording studio time. Now, with the daily, exponential expansion of the world-wide-web, artists are collaborating—not only without being in the studio together—but also without being on the same continent! (Not long ago, we reviewed hip-hoppers Black Astronaut who use this model.)
The light-hearted, The Roving Apatosaurus (TRA), is also one such group of artists who describe themselves as, “…a collaboration of multiple independent freelance artists from geographically disparate locations.” With no distinct style or genre, their primary objective is to create fun-loving covers of older classic or contemporary songs.

With previous work which includes a remake of, The Night the Piñatas Came Back, (orginally by by Mark Burrows), TRA has recently released their latest collaborative effort, Do The Freddie, a cover of the 1960s dance hit from Freddie And The Dreamers. Accompanied by its colorful, fully animated “how-to” video, the quirky number will have your kids going crazy…doing “The Freddie”.
