START BELIEVING THE HYPE !


BOOTIK MOOSIK’S HYPERIUM
 [BOOTIK REC, 2014]

"What did you discover about musical theater?" wondered a Hollywood reporter as impressed by Bootik Moosik’s Broadway aspirations than by their Rock Opera ambition. "There's no money in it," replied the artistes, who reminds us that music is better negotiated as a philanthropic hobby in our digital world. 

And though Bootik Moosik's pact with musical theatre should require them to sacrifice music, where their gifts are huge, for theatre, where they’re but novices; the songs themselves are rich, mocking rock, religion, musical comedy, the classix, and American culture all at once. 

Bootik's Diablo is a midlife whiner, God an unknown quantity, heroes & foes are bigger creeps than both of them respective armies put together while good girl-bad girls set a mean & deadly ‘pozzaz’ agenda. 

The pleasure Bootik takes in this hubris is so ebullient that the satire never turns cheap. And if it reeks of mock self importance, well, how better to bum-rush Western civ and "America's greatest art form" simultaneously ?  –  Sum Gall (Bean Counter Mag & Blog)

GUEIRUSSALAHIM

The glorious city as the theater of HYPERIUM SUITE 

An opera about gods, their minions & the load of pain,
misery & mayhem that follows as dogma fever rears its ugly head.

Reality as allegory of our opera's narrative.

:: HAPPY 50th !








:: SUPER DUPER 
OLD SCHOOL MARKETING ::


Bootik's holiday extravaganza. 

Consisting of The KINKS ‘You Really Got Me’ & the first release from the HYPERIUM SUITE full fledge opera entitled 'How Blue'; adoring fans are left wondering why da f@*K ?

The short answer being... 'Because they bloody well can !

Proposed label for the 78 rpm ‘heavy metal’ printing of the ‘Double A side’ single.




This "way over very special pressing will come with a very limited collector’s edition of a 78rpm portable player for the Bootik fan on the move. Designed to bring back the ‘rich tone’ & ‘quality’ that our grand parents enjoyed; this one time only offer will be available on a strictly need to possess. 




:: service note ::
No 33rpm or 45rpm records are planned but the guys are talking about putting out a ‘wax cylinder’ in an homage to all the poor old sods who entirely missed the rock & roll era.
