Attic Ted – “Hemogoblin ” – [Pecan Crazy Records]
Grady Roper leads his San Marcos TX merry men through
a fourth go-round of post-apocalyptic gothic carnival
twang designed to disorient/haunt/enervate/charm
fans of horror film-style keyboards/costume, lethal lead guitar
licks (courtesy Wade Driver, also of TACHYCARDIA and
the HICKOIDS), frantic drumming (Coby Cardosa) and
blazing sampler (Lance McMahon) action in service to a
Hammond organ-fueled muse of inebriated masquerade.
?’I’m swimming in a lake of fire
I didn’t wear the right attire
Flesh melting in my shoes
This time ‘I’m sure to lose?’
Members of ATTIC TED feature oversized freakish headgear
on stage, first pioneered at Halloween show 2002 & now a
band tradition. This LP features seven studio band tracks,
and four of Roper’s Tascam Porta-Studio manic creations.
Crazed & inspired, a wonderful release.
