Mystical Shit & Fluting on the Hump

Mystical Shit & Fluting on the Hump is a compilation of avant-garde band King Missile’s third album, Mystical Shit, and first album, Fluting on the Hump. The package was first released in 1990 on Shimmy Disc and rereleased on September 7, 2004 on Instinct Records / Shimmy Disc.

In the mid-1980s, John S. Hall would get up on NYC anti-folk stages (centered at the East Village’s Sidewalk Café), and spout his wonderful poetic nonsense about fish betting on horseracing, driving cheesecake trucks, and way-cool saviors baking delicious cakes, in his inimitable wry, deadpan, ironic voice. By the end of the decade, he had hooked up with guitarist Dogbowl and built up a band whose cobbled-together, gleefully directionless, lower-than-lo-fi sound paired deliciously with its frontman’s wandering stories. King Missile caught the eye of avant-garde producer Kramer, signed to his Shimmydisc, and released three bizarre records that built immense college buzz about the band. Mystical Shit / Fluting on the Hump gathers together the top songs from the act’s Shimmydisc recordings, including the now-standards hinted at in the first sentence. The highest peak is the irreverent Take Stuff From Work, which ends on a classic note: ‘I’m getting paid to write songs about stuff I stole from them. Life is good’. This ultimately sums up the spirit of the irascible Hall (and to an extent King Missile): for all his angst, he’s clearly having fun”.

Features the classics “Jesus Was Way Cool” “Sensitive Artist” and “Wuss”.
