The Kazoo Funk Orchestra formed in Scotland at the end of 2005, as a pre-apocalyptic merry-go-round collective, featuring musicians, anti-poets, dancers and finger painters. Building their melodies at a DIY project studio in producer Ray McCartney’s living room, the band exchanged influences and took inspiration from various genres to create their eclectic mix-tape sound.
In May 2006, the band released their 25-track debut album, Midnight Finger Painter, in which the first 500 copies included a unique finger painting created by fans and band members. This was followed by a handful of local gigs, before Adventures in Fuzzy Felt Land was released as a thirteen track EP in January 2007.
During the winter of 2007-2008, the band released This Album is Self Titled, their second full-length LP.
A recorded session was aired on BBC Alba in January 2009.
