The Breakfast Summit is the musical narration of a hypothetical meeting (over breakfast)
of.... lemme think, Amanda, Tori Amos, Courtney Love, Avril Lavigne, Bjork... Liz Phair...
anyone else?  Pink ...and they discuss the state and status of women in the recording industry.

It's pretty clever.

The originally wasn't very HQ, very much like "start recording and just play..." Amanda stops playing, and Ben Folds' is heard calling her something like "you fucking idiot keep playing!" all in good fun. The last time I looked for this song, I found it through google.. something like hype machine. If I am remembering correctly - and I may not be - I think amanda released this demo through an old blog post.

i could have sworn it was brian- i thought the song was from 2003 before the dresden dolls signed to roadrunner?

That would make a lot of sense context wise but I'm pretty sure it's Ben

well yeah, but i thought the recording itself was from 2003 or so as well. i haven't listened in awhile though, maybe i'm wrong.

I am pretty sure that it is Ben, it was released in Sept 2008 on Becca Darling's website The Beecharmer (the old direct link is now inactive and her new site doesnt have the old post up - but if you're so inclined you can shoot her an email through the site's contact address and ask her about it. http://thebeecharmer.wordpress.com

if no one else messages becca i might later, but now that i've done a little digging my mind is refreshed a bit as to what might have made me think what i thought

http://dresdendollsdiary.blogspot.com/2004/05/052304.html

at risk of sounding crazy, i think my thought process at the time of whenever this idea was cemented into my brain was something like this:

*amanda got a new keyboard
*amanda wanted to try it out
*she decided to demo a new song on it
*that was the breakfast summit
*i think there was something about amanda having a yamaha keyboard which sounded nicer than her kurzweil but she kept it at home for demoing or something, like there was some reason why she didn't tour with it
*the song sounded like a keyboard to me, but it definitely wasnt her kurzweil
*it doesn't sound like the wkap demos
*the person at the end's voice sounded, to me, like brian's so much i never questioned it (but i'm really not familiar with ben's voice)

so yeah. i'm not saying any of this to continue a source-less argument or anything, just putting my thoughts down in case we don't get an answer. a lot of these ideas, in my memory, felt like things i thought were confirmed, but apparently not. hm. now i really can't wait to find out!

ahh. okay. we'll see.
but i KNEW that i read a blog about it, couldn't find it, but knew i wasn't making it up. thank you for linking it. I think amanda's piano is a Yamaha. at the MIT webcast she said something about using Yamahas because they don't break (in regards to the MIT piano breaking while she played)

i'm on "team brian" too. i know i've read this somewhere and the idea of the recording being pre-Roadrunner is making sense. unless i read it in the forum and someone wrote by mistake that brian is in it at the end and i just took their word for granted

I am still pretty new to this forum, I am more of a lurker than a poster and I am not sure if I have the right thread. But I figure I will give it a shot and ask here and maybe someone can point me in the right direction, or laugh at me for a bit.

Just how impossible is it to find a decently priced copy of the split 7" she did with Murder By Death?

well, they have removed it from their merch store, so i guess it's sold out, but a couple of months ago i saw a copy on ebay for like $10. keep checking ebay and maybe another will pop up.

Also i remember last year Sylvia, who does some fantastic AFP related artwork, was auctioning some stuff, and the vinyl was one of them, but i don't know if she got around to sell it in the end. check out these posts and maybe sent her an email:
