At The Haunted House
"At The Haunted House" is a live recording made during producer Phil Dirt's KFJC-FM radio broadcast. Creating a visceral listening experience with their left-coast instrumental sound blended with a healthy dose of psychedelica, the trio (Jim Thomas (guitar), Allen Whitman (bass) and Martyn Jones (drums)) also manage to blend in a number of quotes into their original tracks. "The Whales Are Coming & Boy Are They Pissed" is a good example of this, with musical quotes such as Jaggar/Richards "Paint It Black" and the traditional "Hava Nagila", among others. "At The Haunted House" could be considered a true 'beat the boots' album; documenting the Mermen live, with better fidelity and performances, than the dozens of bootlegs floating around today.
