Tom Knight Garbage Monster

Just in time for Halloween, children's musician and puppeteer Tom Knight has released a music video on YouTube for his song THE GARBAGE MONSTER to promote the November 18th of his 6th album for kids titled Look Both Ways. Since 1988, Tom has delighted children and their grown-ups with his interactive, musical puppet shows featuring hand-made puppets and catchy songs. Look Both Ways is targeted to children between 3 and 8 years old and will be available at all major digital retailers where music is sold.

The Garbage Monster which is included in the song list for Look Booth Ways is an updated fan favorite song Knight has performed in the past. This new version of The Garbage Monster retains everything that first made the song a hit, including its rousing call-and-response chorus, but Tom has updated the number with a funky rhythm section to replace the original folk guitar and piano. The musician relayed to he hopes that those who loved the original The Garbage Monster will find much to enjoy in the new version, and those who are discovering the song for the first time will delight in the shout-along excitement of the story and its environmental message promoting recycling.

"I wrote 'The Garbage Monster' in 1987 or 1988," Tom Knight told "I had been hired by the Cayuga Nature Center in Ithaca, New York to create a puppet show about recycling. I had a story idea about a monster made of garbage who could be recycled, and the song practically wrote itself. I've been singing it ever since, to the delight of audiences for over 30 years."
