‘Music For Supervillains’ is a CD for the special villainous soul in your life. Crafted by the Consortium of Genius and selling for the criminal low price of $9.99, this CD contains a bunch of songs for every evil personality in your confused brain. The CD tells the story of the Consortium of Genius and their rather pathetic failures in the area of zombie creation. In between failures, they segue into songs in the styles of country, metal, lounge songs etc. In other words, it is some crazy shit.
I downloaded the CD because hey, music for supervillains, and I have to say that I was a little unimpressed at first. It won me over however with it’s rather fearless commitment to jokes I would have given up on long ago. There is something wonderfully cheesy about the whole affair that requires the listener to have a drink and chill out. It is like a super extended Mystery Science Theater 3000 skit. I have a feeling that these people would be awesome to see on stage and after a bit, I found myself tickled by their crazy humor. It just goes to show that commitment to a crazy idea can overcome anything.
They are a comedy group but they are also quite good musicians. Some of the songs are just umm, genius. ‘Zombie Apocalypse Barbecue’ is going on my next road trip. ‘Mallet of Metal’ brings a tear to my jaded Dungeons and Dragons soul. I really have to give some special praise to ‘Everybody Dies (But Me)’ as it may be my favorite Femme Fatale song of all time.
As a guy who writes erotic stories about a mad scientist, I recognize that this band has the same insane commitment to their pet project. The wonder of the internet makes it possible to share in their hallucination. Give their album a try at CDBaby at this link here.
