Album Notes
Goth Mountain brings back that time in rock when long-haired hippies in flannel shirts and leather-clad bikers gathered in rustic mountain bars to party. The psychedelic rock music of Goth Mountain reminds us of back when light shows of bubbling colored liquids and painted go go girls complemented the sonic haze of the rock band. Back when Jesus Christ was a Superstar and the Moon was in the Seventh Sun and spirituality was both questioned and expanded upon in new ways.

Here are two reviews of "She Wouldn't Know" taken from Sir George Martin's (Beatles Producer) GARAGEBAND:

On a Trip
This issometripped out sh$t. Very very very cool. The guitars are very nice mellow and well textured. The different flavors really bring about an sweet entire package! The chorus is very powerful and lift the song to another level. Very well done!

Great Sounding Experimental Tune
I love the vocals. Nothing crazy, but yet unique and engaging. I love the megaphone effect. Great delayed guitar. Chorus catchy, but not catchy enough to sound popish. As far as who you sound like.... I dont know.. Might be Pink Floyd, but without Roger Waterses distinctive voice (which is a good thing in my book). I think that this one deserves a 5 stars, without a doubt. It's original, experimental, and at the same time not heavy on my ears. Great job and keep doing what you doing, it works!!!!

Goth Mountain Blues is dedicated to the long gone Chateau Liberte’ in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California and all of its freaks and hippies and angels from Hell.

Think Pink is dedicated to Richard Wright, Co-Founder of the legendary band Pink Floyd who died during the production of this album.

Guns For Money was originally written with Ed Kane in 1986.

Goth Mountain combines heavy rumbling bass lines with dreamy acoustic and electric guitar arrangements. Haunting keyboards and symphonic elements add to the otherworldly effect caused by listening to Goth Mountain. Structurally, the music is a blend of English Blues, Folk Rock and Progressive Rock. Pink Floyd fans usually relate to Goth Mountain, often comparing Goth Mountain's W.J. McKay with Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett.

McKay's voice is distant and removed, much like Jim Morrison of The Doors. The lyrical content is dark and gothic . . . fear, war and mayhem, raw nature, questions of faith, lonesome ballads, despair and death. Yet the words are delivered in a groovy way with a subtle undertone of sarcasm.

I left the valley below and its warfare on the shadows of my mind.
Through rows of poppies and the women in the field I ran.
When darkness fell I sought solace from false prophets.
But alas I was found in the crumbling ruins of a forgotten biker bar.
Legions of fallen idols ask eternal “Why did I die?”

Goth Mountain fans tend to have a taste for early rock bands like Cream, Steppenwolf, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Arthur Brown, Jefferson Airplane, and, of course, The Beatles.

Like Pink Floyd albums and many of the great 60's and 70's releases, Goth Mountain is a concept album. Recurring themes and references give the album a strong sense of conceptual continuity. Although The Shadows and Silken Aliens have been popular singles, the whole album delivers a groovy rock vibe rarely heard in new music today.

Production is all-digital and mastered. The Goth Mountain CD is professionally packaged in standard jewel tone cases with compelling graphics that set the tone for the whole album.

I Almost Snapped Out Of It!
As I lay decomposing in the mulchy earth of Goth Mountain, something in the shadows almost made me sit up in my grave! It was the ethereal vibe of the debut album by Goth Mountain. I just wish this boneyard had better monitors!

Goth HEAVAN!!!!
You have to sift through HUNDREDS of artists on CD Baby before you stumble onto a gem like this. Once you find it though, it makes all the searching worth while.

This one is LOADED with magic. It takes you on a journey to places where others have not conceived. It's absolutely enthralling! After I sampled the first 2 songs I knew I was onto something. In the middle of the 4th song I clicked "BUY". I can't get the song Silken Aliens out of my head. And that "Shadows" song.....WOW. This is some fantastic stuff. I have bookmarked your website and will be on the lookout for your next cd! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!
