ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Scotti Mars
Of Monsters, Madness and Mayhem

“If Steven King were a songwriter he would have written these songs.”
Maggi Mattert

These songs maybe considered creepy, scary, or just really strange, depending on how you look at them. But they’re definitely not to be taken too seriously. I don’t want any one to listen to one of these tunes and think it’s OK to go out and kill someone. I wrote these babies to entertain myself first and if it entertains others too, so much the better.
I feel I’m a good human. I don‘t bite the heads off of doves (sorry Ozzy) or consider myself any kind of evil minded wacko, but everyone has some dark place inside them. And I guess that’s where these songs would reside.
This project all started out as a request from my son. He wanted me to record a CD with “that scary song on it”. Not knowing what song he wanted I started putting together some of the songs that fit this description. (I have quite a few songs that I’ve written and archived).
After I recorded the CD, I realized the 5 tunes had a cohesive image and made for a good trip through some of my darkest audio moments. I made a couple more copies and gave them to friends and got a hell of a lot of good feed back with it. Funny thing was, that no one was indifferent, they either didn’t like them (I read in to it, they didn’t get it) or they loved ‘em. The drummer in my current band, even said that I should add a couple more songs and release them on CD.
This idea kept gnawing at me, so… here it is.
It should be brought up now that not all of these songs were recorded at the same time. Most don’t even use the same musicians. The band Big Feel no longer exists and the two tunes here were remixed to “finish” them. I know my two old band mates would probably hate what they finally ended up sounding like. But I own them, wrote them, so… fuck them.
Pagan Blues is still a working, playing, breathing rock band. I felt obliged to put the song “Emily the Strange” on the CD not because it’s creepy but because I love the way it paints a great picture of this little girl who sells Pop-Goth mirsh. The song is relatively the newest tune on the album and is one of my favorites from Pagan Blues’ latest release, “The Breaking”.
I hope you enjoy these strange ditties and don’t take them too seriously, As I’ve said, I’m not trying to be Marilyn Manson or even Alice Cooper, but after all, monsters, madness and mayhem do exist, and some of that is… inside all of us.
