Their Weapons of Choice
The Outsider Artist Influence is what makes The Trigger-Happy Kittens' Music so unique,shaped by a truly individualistic, though off-the-shelf, set of Instruments. The Trigger-Happy Kittens' Minimoog Voyager Select Series Performances are augmented with, expression and effects pedals, Sequencers, the occasional usage of MIDI, plus occasional Mac or iOS Soft Synths and Arpeggiator apps. The Trigger-Happy Kittens was Founded when Michael was standing in his burgeoning Home Studio next to the Akai Electronic Drum Kit while Aster, (a White House Cat, now deceased) and Bebe, (a Maine Coon Cat), rubbed up against the Drums;. Michael looked up from their Cats and said, "Those are some Trigger-Happy Kittens!", referring to the Drum Triggers of the Electronic Drum Kit. The Name stuck.
The Trigger-Happy Kittens are also Members of the Indie Underground Electronic Music Movement, #WEATNU (We Are The New Underground). The THK is regularly featured on @NCCRRadio’s, #InTheMoog in the North Cotswolds near Gloucestershire, England and on The Lion FM90.7, Penn State's University Radio on DJ TK's Show: Altered State.
