And so it began. What started as a 2-song joke would eventually evolve into a full-fledged series-spanning 100-song epic, and a slew of stories. These were the early days of The Fringemunks, and the premise was as clever as it was simple: recap each episode of Fringe with a song parody, sung (somewhat) in the style of Alvin & the Chipmunks.
For the most part, each song was recorded and released within a few days after the corresponding episode aired, from 2008-2009. The one main exception occurred well after the season ended: “Unearthed” (technically a Season 1 episode that aired during Season 2) provides a noteworthy “encore” to the primary 20 songs.
This album is a feat in filk music, and it kicked off what was and still could be the franchise project of (and biggest draw to) DavidWuMusic.com.
