Here Come the Mummies (http://www.herecomethemummies.com) may be the sexiest, most mysterious funkmeisters the world has ever seen, but promoting a record takes a ton of shekels. The concepts involved are challenging, too, when you have the collective brain power of a bath tub full of guacamole. “For example, Spaz totally misunderstood ‘fund-raising.’ He just held a 75lb bag of nickels over his head until he finally blacked out,”says Java. “Sad”.
There was brief talk of an HCTM stud-service, as stiffness comes naturally to these saucy specters, but this was thought to be a potential public health menace. So, Eddie Mummy, Java, K.W. Tut, Mummy Cass, The Pole, Midnight, Mummy Rah, and The Flu decided to create a Kickstarter campaign located at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/787528134/make-cryptic-our-best-and-biggest-yet
to take Cryptic worldwide.
“Cryptic is sexy, scary, funny, sweet, low-down, hiked-up and basically kicks ass, baby,” says Java. The new songs are some of HCTM’s most infectious to date: “Chaperone” is an ode to sneaking off for a little nooky and is super-hooky; “Petting Zoo” is dripping with animal attraction providing a meteoric-metaphoric good time; there’s a super-fly paean to HCTM’s favorite pastime called “You Know the Drill” and “Never Grow Old” is a soul-set piece that will… well, never grow old.

“There are some great rewards offered on our Kickstarter campaign. We have dream items for our legions of faithful ‘Undead-Heads,’ as well as some tailored for those just curiously sniffing around the sarcophagus,”hollers Java. “Backers get exciting rewards from HCTM, including hand-written lyrics, a dinner/ house performance, or even ‘Executive Producer’ status, Quincy Jones style, y’all.”
