This song took a lot of work.  It was written on a plane ride to Scotland in 2017 while reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.  It’s a song that deals with an irrational fear of the creeping technology that sprouts up all around us all of the time.  It has been rewritten several times, beefed up then stripped down, only to be fattened back up into a complete sonic monstrosity of bloated arrangements of sound.  But none of that matters now.  Only the finished product.  Pat creates a unique display of animated eye candy discussing the elements that went into creating this unbridled pop experiment. 

In the 2nd episode of CHOPPED UP AND BROKEN DOWN, we delve deeply into our recording and song writing process of The Incredible "A", showcasing the individual elements that make up the unique Cleaver sound.  We examine individual sonic pairings that you might not hear in the whole mix and look at the stories behind the songs.  And Pat’s vivid and amusing style of animation keeps things entertaining.  Please give it a try. (We recommend watching with a pair of high quality headphones or top shelf speakers.)  

In this never-before-released video, the Cleavers break down their song, "Must Be Nice", show you how to play it, strip back the many layers of instrumentation and reveal all it's dirty little secrets.

Since their inception in 1998, this is the 4th cover tune that June Cleaver and the Steak Knives done in all of these years. They've started working on some new interpretations of some of our old favorites. June Cleaver and the Steak Knives cover the 1987 David Bowie song, Time Will Crawl. in this new animated video.

At long last, we proudly present our second music video, Hands Of A Working Man, starring the breathtaking, David J. Bradley, a man who knows what it means to be a man.   A man who cut his milk teeth chewing nails and pounding away at the ol’ grindstone.  A man who knows these fragile new generations of pansy ass deadbeats don’t know how good they have it.  And that’s a fact…Let’s join him as he and his hands give the world a piece of his mind.
