At The Mountains Of Madness

August 27, 2007 7:11 AM

A short surf instrumental. One of the bands I'm currently in, The Filthy Thirds, has started a side project/alter ego group called The Boogeymen. It is a horror/surf project where we mash up classic horror movie persona's with early 60's surf. We wrote all our own surf songs, our only cover being a "Wipeout" style version of John Carpenter's "Halloween" theme. Our debut show is in a couple of weeks and we will play in costume. My character is Mummy Holly. This song gets its title from an H.P. Lovecraft book,and was recorded with a hanging mic in the basement, yet is surprisingly clear. Some lead guitar was overdubbed.

Oddly enough, some cheap dynamic mic.

Hey MeFites let me join in on the fun.
Two Thumbs Up for the Filthy Thirds aka The Boogeymen. You guys are rockin with this tune.
This song plus my birthday being tommorrow reminds me of the stuff I used to hear on the old AM radio.
Great Job!

Quentin Tarantino would need a new pair of pants if he heard this.

LOVED the song, but I wish the rhythm guitar was panned hard left instead, with the lead line in the middle. It's definitely the "focus" and need to be in the middle (in my opinion).

Still, great song, and sounds awesome for one mic.

Great fun! I love the sound. Ever hear of the Zombie Surfers? They were (are?) a band from Detroit, mostly played locally, they were an offshoot of the 3-D Invisibles.
