Album Notes
Criminal Mimes is the second album in the continuing saga of the adventures of Marcel and Mimi Mime. This album finds Marcel and Mimi just trying to survive after falling on hard times. Marcel has lost his job; they’ve completely depleted their savings and finally, lost their home. They are living on the streets and worst of all, it’s Christmas!

At this point in the Mimes On Rollercoasters™ timeline, our debut album: The First Date, (released December of 2012), has enjoyed good reviews and international success. This encouragement is what drove us right back into the studio in January of 2013 to begin writing and recording Criminal Mimes.

Mark Ruester, the Mimes On Rollercoasters™ founder, insisted on creating a more edgy sound for Criminal Mimes than was found on their debut album: The First Date. To this end, Mark turned to his old friend Greg Teresi for both inspiration and collaboration. Together they’ve managed to crank out 10 new tracks that deliver just the sound Mark was looking for, to bring the story to life.

Greg’s guitar work is featured on the tracks: I Woke Up, Breaking Up, Alone In The Night and Doing Hard Time.

In some of the more unique aspects of the music, Mark continues to utilize the haunting sounds of the flute. Chessie Ruester returns on this album to provide her expert interpretations of rock flute. Providing such a unique sound when used in rock music, the flute can convey anything from a creepy sound such as you will find in The Creepy Stalking Of Mimi Mime to a mysterious sound as found in Doing Hard Time or, a somber sound as in Hold Me, and finally to the up beat and happy sound of Making Up.

But edgy, mysterious, creepy, somber and happy were just not enough for Mark. Always pushing the boundaries Mark still needed something more. A touch of jazz perhaps? Enter Adeline and the alto sax.

Criminal Mimes marks the debut of Adeline’s amazing alto saxophone with the Mimes On Rollercoasters™. Featured most prominently on Making Up, Adeline also contributed greatly to the backbone of Doing Hard Time. Coming from a jazz background, Adeline has provided that extra “something more” that Mark was looking for. Watch for her name on future album credits!

So sit back and take a listen. Oh and be sure to check out The Adventures Of Marcel And Mimi Mime on our website. Enjoy!!
