What is or are Bunny Clogs? Beatrix Potter hopped up on Goofers? Captain Kangaroo singing Run DMC’s “You be Illin’?” A three-way train wreck between Kraftwerk, the Beastie Boys and Harry Nilsson? A toilet paper party with Henry Kissinger in a bad Philidelphia neighborhood? Randy Newman and Dr. Seuss hijacking a Parliament Funkadelic show? The Beatles on a solid macaroni and cheese diet? Perhaps all of the above.
Bunny Clogs is Shel Silverstein-meets-Prince surreal dance fun. The debut record, “More! More! More!” is not your run-of-the-mill strummy, folky kids’ record. Part comedy record with Seussian characters, part dance party with all of the attendent drum loops and house and hip-hop accoutrements, and part subtle message of peace, love and positive gastronomy, Adam Levy’s Bunny Clogs is music for kids of ALL ages.
“More! More! More!” was largely a family affair, recorded at home with his children in between work on Levy’s primary muse the Honeydogs. His daughters Esther and Ava Bella sing throughout it and his son Daniel did the art work for the record. Levy finished work on ‘More! More! More!’ with some friends and students at the music school at which he he teaches, The Institute of Production and Recording in Minneapolis.
Bunny Clogs’ “More! More! More!” asks the big questions: “Is there life in outer space?” “Should we be eating our broccoli?” “Is it OK to dance when no-one else is?” And “are children chick magnets?”
“Bunny Clogs take Beastie Boys’ cool, Prince’s groove, and Flaming Lips’ wackiness and serves it up kid-friendly-sweet… these songs have heart, addressing issues like eating healthy, respecting the environment, and helping out those less fortunate.” City Pages

“The lyrics oscillate between the completely juvenile and oddly cerebral…More! More! More! is like Pee-wee’s Playhouse in its ability to entertain and educate kids while also working in a few chucklers for the adult bystanders.” How Was the Show?
“Surprisingly cheeky, funky and danceable…” VitaMN
