Today we bring you a special treat, premiering not one, but two tracks from Kepi Ghoulie and the Accelerators, “Carly Simon” and “Fun in the Dark.” Both tracks will appear on the upcoming album Fun in the Dark, to be released on March 24th through Eccentric Pop Records. Check out the two songs below.
Fun in the Dark is a re-imagining of the classic 1999 Groovie Ghoulies album of the same name. While Kepi Ghoulie remains on the vocals, he is backed-up musically by Holland’s Accelerators (as well as back-up vocals provided by Sacramento’s Dog Party). This is the first in a series of re-recorded Groovie Ghoulies albums to come, the next one featuring The Copyrights providing the music for Re-Animation Festival (we’ll keep you updated on that).
“Once again, we have created a recording of a group of friends who appreciate and respect what each other does, joining forces to make a document of that relationship and the music/fun/energy it has brought forth! “
The original Groovie Ghoulies album will also be re-issued sometime in the future through Green Door. You can pre-order this new version of Fun in the Dark here or here, along with Groovie Ghoulies’ Appetite for Adrenochrome on LP and CD.
