The Richard Feynman Club Band: prankster

























Here they are, songs dedicated to computing, nuclear physics, californication, and Richard Feynman. If you liked QED from The Richard Feynman Club Band, you will love prankster and the forthcoming Nerds in Topless Bars. As one band member asks, "What couldn't Richard Feynman do?". and the songs here reflect that admiration (mostly). The music has improved too--not everything sounds like the bar music from Star Wars on this album. Plus, there are experiments in bongos and American Indian drumming featured throughout the improvisational scores.

Here's the playlist:

1) Klaus Fuchs Car
2) 27-18-28
3) Dance and Chant
4) A Topless Bar Called "The Voyage of Discovery"
5) Ofey
6) O-Rings
7) Prankster ("Ha-ha, Nobel Prize Winner, I tricked you.")
8) My Maya
9) Los Alamos on the Weekend
10) QED
11) I Didn't Drop the Bomb (a song that threatned to split the Oxnard fan club)
12) Bongo Man
13) Neils Bohr and Friends
14) Safecracker ("1 left, 1 right, I don't have to be here all night.")

This album is a must-have for any Richard Feynman Fan Club. Personally (and we all know Richard turned away from alcohol so as not to dull his brain), I think 27-18-28 makes a great drinking song.

  1. I actually have 5 copies of this album - vinyl, disc, tape, mp3 & bootlegged studio Ogg. Can you say, "Worship?"
