SLG Publishing, Slabyard Sound, Horrible Comics and Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits team up for Meal Deal with the Devil EP and read-along storybook!
In the world of action comics, our heroes must sometimes form unlikely alliances to win the day. These oddball combinations are often all that stands between the universe and total destruction. And in the real world, things are not so different as you might think. One such long-awaited what if scenario is finally coming to pass; SLG Publishing is joining forces with Horrible Comics and underground comedy-rock legends Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits for the epic multimedia release of Meal Deal With The Devil!
Meal Deal With The Devil combines a five-song CD EP (including two story-songs) from the devious San Francisco Bay Area musical satirists with an accompanying read-along storybook, illustrated by Jason Chandler of Horrible Comics, and brought to you by SLG. Just like all those childrens books with records that let you know when to turn the page, Meal Deal is the real deal, featuring three brand new & exclusive Bobby Joe Ebola tracks for bratty little monsters of all ages, as well as a two story songs tracks that you can read-along with! Chandlers detailed full-color art brings the MacNuggits wry, twisted humor to the page, an epic matchup that creates a hilarious carnival ride for the eyes and ears. This mutant offspring of comics and rock from the heroes of the underground is destined to be the kind of collectors item that wont stay on the shelf!
About the band:
First formed in 1995, Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits have become legend in the musical underground of the Bay Area and beyond, with their infamously unpredictable mix of searing social satire, soaring harmonies, outlandish and shocking truths, and poop jokes. With a nod to social satirists like Lenny Bruce and George Carlin, and musical influences ranging from They Might Be Giants to DeBarge, Bobby Joe Ebola is the vaudeville routine for your personal apocalypse.
After 15 years as an acoustic duo, singer Corbett Redford and guitarist Dan Abbott convinced bassist Sean McTiernan and drummer Josh Wharton (both of Mystic Knights of the Cobra) to join the band. They are also aided by Craigums Hot Lixx Hulahan Billmeier (incidentally, one of the planets top-ranked air guitarists) on lead guitar and vocals. They tour constantly. Catch them in your town!
