Loke E. Coyote is proud to announce the unveiling of their latest CD, entitled "Yipe! Hype!", which has been in the works since last year's release of the Pagan rock opera Druid Four Winds. While the rock opera explored the more serious side of the band, this collection returns to their roots as a comic Pagan garage rock party band.
The disk contains at least seven songs (more on this later) which cast a humorous eye on everything from Jesus Christ and greedy televangelists to drunken rednecks and war with Iraq. The opening number Party On Jesus (featured on the Witchvox Bardic Circle) dares to tell the story of Jesus Christ the bearded robe and sandal wearing long haired Pagan freak. Cums The Inquisitor and Doggy Style look at love and lust when it's good (Doggy Style) and when it's bad (Inquisitor). Hold My Beer And Watch This was inspired by countless work weekends at the Council of Magickal Arts (CMA) and may well be the bands's ticket to the Doctor Demento Funny Five. The topic of poor Pagans is explored and solved with the subgenius anthem Fleece The Pinks, while rich televangelists are exposed in Carpe Dios (Seize the God). The final selection, Hodie Oddie, is the closest thing to serious on the CD, and is about the US foreign policy of creating bad guys who can later be used to justify war. Clips from all the songs may be heard on Loke E. Coyote's web site at wiccabilly.com.
Yipe! Hype! is an extended CD which provides extra goodies when you put it in your computer. In addition to lyrics for all the songs, there's a bonus track: Discordian Duck recorded live at last year's MeGaPaGaTeXaPaLooZa Houston with guest musicians from SONA. And that's not all. There's the first episodes of a new comic strip called "Megan the Pagan" which introduces the characters Ripsaw and Buzzcut featured on the CD cover and in the song Hold My Beer And Watch This. Also included with the disk is a coupon good for 1/3 off the purchase price of the groups upcoming multimedia project which is due out in the spring and will include full length music video animations.
In a related topic, Wiccabilly Circus (the LEC's record label) has announced that the very first Loke E. Coyote cartoon entitled "Weed Racer" is now available for viewing at the band's web site. Visit wiccabilly.com for more information, to see the animation, hear music clips, and to order disks online.
