Album Notes
The dread Necronomicon - The Book of Dead Names - whispered of throughout history and made popular by pulp horror author H.P. Lovecraft; filled with sonic \"keys\" that open gateways in between the spaces we know, where the mysterious Great Old Ones, with unpronounceable names like \"Cthulhu\", wait to walk the earth again; few know the book\'s secrets and fewer still can produce a copy. It is rumored, however, that a certain rock band out of the Fraser Valley in British Columbia have access to this, and other forbidden tomes - or at the very least, access to the internet.

This band \"The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets\" has been known to pepper their lyrics with Lovecraftian references, and indeed it is said that the very tones and melodies of the music itself are laced with uncanny alien vibrations, sewing confusion, madness, and above all a tendency to dance. Take, for example, their album \"Cthulhu Strikes Back\", finally re-released after being suppressed and buried for years. First released in 1996, sold out of two pressings, critically acclaimed and yet as rare as any tome of secret knowledge, \"Cthulhu Strikes Back\" strikes back in 2003 courtesy of Divine Industries.

4. When are the Thickets playing in my town? Do they tour other countries besides Canada?
We have gone on two three-week long tours in the past 3 years, but only in Canada. It is difficult and expensive to get across borders. We are always open to doing tours in the US or abroad but it is a question of finding shows or strings of shows which will pay for our food, lodging, air fair, and leave us with enough to pay any bills that have been piling up while we are on tour. That is no easy task, but if you book clubs or know someone who books clubs in your town, have them contact our booking agent James MacLean at (416-598-3330 ext 305). Otherwise, if you just want to be put on our emailing list for shows and news, email and make that request.
Additionally, we usually post our gig info to and the yahoogroups list and the Thickets newsgroup.
