The J. Arthur Keenes Band - The Boring World of Niels Bohr

Off of his dandy new release "Pamplemousse" (as in, "Je suis un pamplemousse!", translated: "I am a grapefruit!", something my friends taking French in high school used to say all the time, much to their own amusement), this track is pretty sweet and not at all bohring. Niels Bohr is the man responsible for the classical picture of the atom with a lumpy ol' nucleus and some electrons that are about as big as one of the lumps whippin' around the nucleus in an elliptical orbit. It's not a very accurate image, but it's stuck and that's what a lot of people (myself included) think of when they hear the word Atom!

The song features all the trademarks of The J. Arthur Keenes Band including: Dan McLay's spectacular voice, some chiptunes, and a stringed instrument (usually picked or strummed rather than bowed)!
