365 Days, 365 Files: Chris Butler – The Devil Glitch

I’ve written about Waitresses founder Chris Butler many times before, but it’s easier just to listen to his music.

Let me just copy and paste what I said about The Devil Glitch:

Butler recorded the longest pop song in the world, as certified by the Guiness Book of World Records. While writing "The Devil Glitch", Butler kept adding lines to his impossibly long chorus.

He sent out a demo of the song to various friends, who then wrote their own music over the song. Butler collected those recordings to fashion a song that continuously evolves and remains engaging for all 69 minutes.

I was incredibly tempted to create an MP3 of that 69-minute track, but that wouldn’t give listeners an incentive to get the CD itself. Butler was merciful enough to make a short version, so perhaps that can serve as an appetizer.
