Call it a ritual, call it whatever you will: when an album we’re frothy for first yields cover art, we like to call in the graphic designers. But first to clarify the album title: Meet At Mount Zoomer (yes At Mount Zoomer — Kissing The Beehive will just have to settle for being a track title), so named because it was recorded at Mount Zoomer, the studio owned and operated by drummer Arlen Thompson. (It’s also a reference to the B.C. nickname for magic mushrooms and “a nod to Thee Silver Mt. Zion” and maybe even more things Wiki hasn’t sussed out yet.)
OK so about that album art … feeling devilish?
A mountain of zoomers, indeed.
