Funk, reggae, H.P. Lovecraft, blasphemous monsters, planetary annihilation, and cannabis. What more do you possibly need to know? Cthulhu: The Funksical is a half hour, rather ridiculous, musical story cycle centered around some H.P. Lovecraft monsters (in particular, Yog Sothoth, Nyarlethotek, and Cthulhu). Two additional tracks are included as free bonus tracks.
The entire project was recorded and produced in Belgrade, Serbia, although the composer, Paul Shapera, is in fact an American who technically resides in New York. The part of Cthulhu is sung by the wonderful Zoe Kidah, and additional thanks also goes out to Zemlja Gruva and MC Milovan in particular for providing immense help and resources for a foreigner in a foreign land.
The vocals and lyrics for Lady Chatterlaine were written and sung by The Matthew Show.
