It's been a long and dusty road since 1922 when, at a dig in the desert south of Tunis, Professor Nigel Quentin Fontanelle Dumblucke IV (1895-) unearthed the ruins of an ancient discotheque to find a dozen undead Egyptian mummies inexplicably throwing down what he dubbed, "Terrifying Funk From Beyond the Grave."
From these hovering souls, who called themselves Here Come The Mummies, Professor Dumblucke learned of the powerful curse that doomed them to wander the earth, seeking the ultimate riff, the one that may allow their spirits to rest after eons of, as they put it, "banging out solid fly grooves, y'all." But their story was murky at best...What is clear is that these saucy specters resurfaced around the turn of the Millennium. Without so much as a hot bath, HCTM would open for P-Funk and Al Green, rock Super Bowl Village 2012, become regulars on The Bob and Tom Show and at massive festivals like Summerfest and Musikfest, and make themselves the darlings of sell-out crowds over wide swaths of North America. Maybe that's why the ladies (and some dudes) can't stop losing their minds over these mayhem-inducing mavens of mirth.2013 saw HCTM pool what remained of their dusty hearts, addled brains, and withered appendages to make Cryptic, their acclaimed sixth studio album.
2014 has been HCTM's most prolific year to date! Three of five scheduled 5-song EPs have been released so far: A La Mode, Pull it Off, and Shocker. An adapted version of
Rejuvannihilation, a new full-length concert film, is airing across the US on Public Television's Front and Center.Some say they were cursed after deflowering a great Pharaoh's daughter. Others claim they are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTM's mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready, Here Come The Mummies.
