Just in time for Halloween:
Mad Tea Party releases ROCK N ROLL GHOUL

Asheville’s rock ‘n’ roll duo Mad Tea Party celebrate their favorite holiday again this year with ROCK N ROLL GHOUL, a follow-up to 2009’s ZOMBIE BOOGIE. With garage-rock icon Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound, Oblivions) at the production helm, this year’s monster offering promises to make you howl at the moon.

Mad Tea Party provides their usual palate of shimmering vocal harmonies over Jason Krekel’s one-man-band juke joint guitar/percussion and Ami Worthen’s electric ukulele. Of course, ROCK N ROLL GHOUL also includes some sonic surprises.

The EP offers up 4 spooky selections for your rockin’ Halloween party. “Possessed,” a 60s-tinged psychedelic number, features Worthen’s wicked vocals and a demonic guitar solo from Mr. Cartwright. The furious screamer “Rock ‘n’ Roll Ghoul” expounds upon the theme of flesh-eating music critics while drivin’ rocker “Dr. Phibes” is an ode to the popular Vincent Price villain. The duo close with the Hollywood Flames’ song “Frankenstein’s Den” with Cartwright on drum kit and Caroline Pond (Snake Oil Medicine Show) joining Worthen on doo-wop vocals.

ROCK N ROLL GHOUL is available as a 7” vinyl record and as digital downloads. The EC horror comics inspired art for the record was hand drawn by San Francisco artist Gus Cutty.

Track Name: Rock 'n' Roll Ghoul
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul dressed in black
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul you’re a musical hack
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul you don’t like my licks
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul you’re making me sick
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul leave me alone
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul gnawing on my bone

Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul you don’t like my art
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul tearin’ me apart
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul rubbin’ me raw
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul makin’ my flesh crawl
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul bad reviews
You ain’t nothin’ but a rock ‘n’ roll ghoul

Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul makin’ me play late
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul then you take all my pay
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul harp in on my gig
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul then act like a pig
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul you’re eating my crowd
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul you got a deadbeat style

Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul stab me with a pen
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul and then you eat my skin
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul you got a sinister laugh
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul and ironic mustache
Rock ‘n’ roll ghoul feedin’ on my soul
Tell me, ghoul, do you know rock ‘n’ roll?
Track Name: Possessed
got a wicked feelin’ comin’ over me
A nasty urge where the sweet one used to be
Last night when I was alone you left your mark
Scrawled into the flesh that covers my heart

Chorus:
You possess me
Your love infests me
You’ve got the best of me
Cause cardiac arrest in me

The cold of your touch I’ve been tryin’ to reconcile
Your long claws baby and sinister, crocodile smile
I ask myself why do I endure this pain
The burnin’ of the hell fires that you bring

Chorus

Bridge:
You give me every reason
to tell you that I’m leavin’
Won’t someone find me the number of a priest
to exorcise this demon

Now hand in hand down darkened streets we roam
So lock your doors and keep your children at home

Chorus
Track Name: Dr. Phibes
You’re a genius by day, a cold-hearted killer by night
The fangs of a mechanized snake deliver your bite
Into the desert is the prize that you seek
Into the temple embrace the jackal’s teeth

Where do you come from?
Where do you hide
your great and terrible devices
Dr Phibes…

Old testament vengeance and plagues you bring down on their heads
Those that seek to deny you a place among the dead
Cold as a corporation, your merciless toll
And the mask that you wear dead as the eyes in your skull

Where do you come from?
Where do you hide
your great and terrible devices
Dr Phibes…

And the love of your woman inspires your murderous plight
You’re a genius by day
and I can’t seem to shake the music
of Dr. Phibes…
