Dischord will be distributing the first three DVD volumes of Pancake Mountain, the Washington D.C. cable access children's show created by Scott Stucky and Monkey Boy Studios which has featured collaborations, performances and appearances by a wide range of artists including: The Evens, Henry Rollins, Anti-Flag, Ted Leo, Thievery Corporation, The Arcade Fire, MIA and many more.
A recent article in GQ described the show:
You have to see to believe Pancake Mountain, the Washington, D.C., cable-access show on which alt-rockers like Ted Leo, Scissor Sisters, and the Arcade Fire play before an audience of energetic little kids, most of whom are barely out of potty training. MTV could never dream up a show that once featured Fugazi god Ian MacKaye lip-syncing a kiddie ditty he wrote called "Vowel Movement." Such moments have made Pancake Mountain the coolest TV booking in rock.
