This was a special SNEAK PREVIEW of the
Mermen studio album, A Glorious Lethal Euphoria (Mesa/Bluemoon
With No Definite Future And No Purpose Other Than To Prevail Somehow
15 sec excerpt:
Photos from the studio...
Allen the bass-player is the most boring member of The Mermen.
Somebody has to do it.
Martyn at his kit. This (un-retouched) photo leaves no doubt that the
drummer for The Mermen likes children.
Jim. When traveling, The Mermen carry with them a special
dumpster on wheels that is rigged for basic life-support and enables Jim
to conduct all manner of alarming experiments in privacy, thereby allowing
the band and crew some peace and quiet. This experiment was successful!
This is Tardon with Sam, one of the two iguanas (the other is named
Dina) that live in a glassed-in room at Mr. Toad's Recording in San
Francisco. Tardon is a nice man. He is helping The Mermen to record a
new studio album that will be out sometime in March of 1995! He is a
very good negotiator.

This is Ron Donovan of Team Drunk Productions. See Ron point and
click. Point, Ron, point. Click, Ron, click. Ron is very stoned.
How else could he turn out so much fantastically gorgeous poster and
cover-art for The Mermen?

This is John Karr, live sound engineer and studio recordist for The
Mermen. It's hard to imagine what could have made John so angry as to
want to flip us off. Is it because we are so obnoxious in the studio
and at live shows that he just wants to get a piece of the action?
