ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Melvin
After the colossal success of Otis and Melvin’s debut album “Chasing Geese”, Melvin, dazed by stardom and believing he had become god-like, leapt atop a timid mule deer and attempted to jump over seven tractor trailers full of rare and priceless antique bells from Hungary. After extensive therapy and a stay in rehab he returned to music.
Melvin’s long-time girlfriend Lilly made parole and as expected left Melvin for a short Greek taxidermist named Sergio. During her incarceration, Lily’s pet boa constrictor Francois stalked and swallowed a hapless delicatessen owner. His bones were bleached and later set on display. Still carrying the torch for Lily, Melvin opened his own road-side stand called “Peppered Caribou on stick”.

Otis
Following Otis’ off-putting solo tour “OTIS”, thanks to Melvin’s mortifying departure from the band, he returned to the US in shame and receded into seclusion. When it became obvious that no one noticed he was missing, he re-emerged with a fervid pep, a pork pie hat and a boll weevil named Clem. The stage was set for Otis and Melvin’s triumphant return. When Melvin received the news of Otis’ renewed zeal, he was so replete with glee that he shinnied up his shoe buckles, licked a tree stump and said the word “crouton” repeatedly until it lost all meaning to him.
And now, after 17 long years, the wait is finally over. Otis and Melvin are together again and out of their minds with a whole new album, “High on Cake.” Have a piece.

(listening may cause: blurry vision, extreme nausea, sweating, hair loss, on-set of OCD, delusions of grandeur, sudden loss of good taste, uncontrollable mirth, an overwhelming desire to sell lasagna out of the back of a van, a deep and abiding love for water polo, difficulty pronouncing the word shabangygadim, perpetual recidivism and very untimely outbursts)
