Foxes and Peppers[edit]

Foxes and Peppers is the seemingly unofficial band name for Pepper Coyote's and Fox Amoore's collaborative work.



#Hashtag is a Rock/Electronic/Folk album Pepper Coyote and Fox Amoore collaborated on. This fourteen-track album derived much of its inspiration from the experience of going to Anthrocon, which is apparent in such songs as Your City My AC and See You Next Year.

The album touched lightly on comedy music influence for its song Fruit Cups, which is about a hyena who follows a fruitarian diet. Also in the album there is a cover of the song Try Everything, featured in Disney's animated feature, Zootopia, and originally sung by Colombian singer and songwriter, Shakira.

Other musicians who are featured in the album include::


In August 2022, Pepper Coyote was blocked from both performing musically and attending DenFur,[10] while Eurofurence prevented him only from performing.[11]

Both furry conventions' official reasons behind Pepper Coyote's bans were due to him being a supporter[12] and financial contributor to the Center for Political Innovation (CPIUSA), an American socialist group[13] who describes itself as an "educational think tank focused on the construction of American socialism", while being described on social media as "Russia state-affiliated media" displaying support for both Putin's invasion of Ukraine and China's takeover of Taiwan.[14]

In 2023, PepperCoyote would post on their Twitter account that they had been blacklisted from Midwest Furfest, Texas Furry Fiesta and Painted Desert Fur Con.[15]
