the gifted children - the reginald pantry
Original release date: early 2009; reissue with bonus tracks and e-books: April 15, 2014
the gifted children released their experimental album, the reginald pantry, five years ago; this 14-song album was imagined as a soundtrack to an imaginary zombie film. Now, author J.A. Johnson has written a novelization of the imaginary movie, inspired by the sounds and arc of the album.
"The Reginald Pantry: a Zombie Chronicle" contains the 'novelization' of the imaginary movie, in addition to links to the original music, special features, photos, deleted scenes and an alternate ending. Structured like a movie on DVD, "The Reginald Pantry: a Zombie Chronicle", is an amazing reading (and audio) experience!
This unique and non-linear project is now available electronically - the gifted children have re-issued 'the reginald pantry', including 7 bonus tracks as 'deleted scenes', which is included with purchases of the eBook. Similarly, purchases of the album include a free download code for the eBook.
