Puppet covers

I Have a thing for puppets ehm well covers with puppets on them. And last queensday (traditional dutch holiday where most streets turn into a giant fleamarket) i found some nice ones.
I guess they're Argentinian. This one is the "best" one it's called "Mis Canciones" the cover has a quite disturbing mouse on it the recording is as disturbing and sometimes even annoying, But it made me laugh a few times even though i couldn't understand a single word they were saying. If anyone has more info or even videos of this character please let me know :) enjoy?

Second one is less disturbing and to be honest i'am quite happy that someone else took the time to rip this, after about 25 minutes of "Mis Canciones" i think i had enough :P But if you're up for more get it here

Călin Ioachimescu / Şerban Nichifor - Oratio II / Magic Spell / Miss Christina (Excerpts) [ST-ECE 02108]

Experimental neo classical record from Romania on the Electrecord label.
Main reason for me buying this was the great cover artwork combined with the information on the back that there was an ARP synthesizer involved in the making of this record.
The Domnişoara Christina (Fragmente) track is just amazing. Quite a dark atmosphere (synth & traditional instruments) combined with a whispering female voice, a really beautiful piece.
The other 2 pieces are nice too more abstract classical music but less synthesizer in these two though.
