Last time we checked in with Team Meat’s Mew-Genics, Alec was purring over the title theme: “I could probably leave that playing for a disturbingly long time. It’s very Danny Elfman, BUT WITH CATS and a bit of skiffle.” Imagine how excited he will be when he sees a five minute video of the chaps behind that track talking about and demonstrating the album-length contribution of music they’ve created for the game. There are also some hints about the game itself, although most of it has been implied elsewhere – a player’s cats can fight other cats, race in the sewers or enter kitty pageants. The music sounds fantastic though and I enjoy Ridiculon’s slightly unhinged boondocks-dwelling schtick.
Among the names dropped in that video is Carla Kihlstedt, who I first became aware of because Tom Waits once rumbled in her vicinity, but soon became aware that she had collaborated far, wide and well. If you find the time, try putting some Tin Hat Trio into your ears this evening.
