Crazy Serbian Butcher’s Dance
Okay, here’s a video of a band from, I assume, Serbia, playing our arrangement of the traditional “Crazy Serbian Butcher’s Dance” on a street in, maybe, Serbia. They do a good job and are way full of life. Just like we like it. - Carl Finch - Feb '14 Machine's Pump

Brave Combo Accordion Book Sculpture
The University of North Texas Libraries have specially commissioned a "Brave Combo Accordion Book" for their Special Collections. Artists Peter and Donna Thomas collaborated with Brave Combo's Carl Finch to create this one-of-a-kind book out of one of Carl's own accordions. Embedded in the red Roma's bellows are many photos of Brave Combo and the story of the Denton-based band.
If you are going to be near the UNT campus in Denton between now and May 9th, you can pop by and see it in person. The sculpture will be on display as part of the collection's spring exhibit in the Sarah T. Hughes reading room on the 4th floor of the Willis Library. It will also continue to be available to be viewed online as part of the libraries' digital collection. https://exhibits.library.unt.edu/spring-exhibit/brave-combo-accordion-book
