about

the mimos recorded this album of quasi space adventure songs around a few principal themes, most significantly the severe paranoia brought on by the knowledge that aliens are watching us at all times. the music was originally the soundtrack to a series of flash animations that told a story of madness, paranoia, mad science and giant squid (yes, the ocean's real silent killers). the characters were:

professor mimo (a time travelling mad scientist)
the robot (a maniacal dancing robot built by professor mimo)
a giant squid (a deadly killer who falls for professor mimo's young bride)
the bride (professor mimo's enchanting bride who has no dialog)
the alien (the one who watches us all)

it was, in it's small way, epic, intimate and insane in equal measures (as are we, the mimos)

enjoy.
