Woglemut is a timeless trickster, a troublesome traveler, a tragic tantric test dummy and inter dimensional Dionysian dumpster deity who with the help of his ethereal spore-based psychedelic demon crunch choir the Mas Moss Maniacs, would like to pied piper you into the depths of a dark and bewildering underworld inside yourself. Woglemut with Mas Moss Maniacs make chickens dance, demons sing, and mountains crumble.
The Red Okra King is everyone's favorite oracular and elusive geodesic gnome. An astral being and protector of the Southern Appalachian dream world-- bridging the gap between the opposing forces of Santa Claus and Cthulhu. Last year, with the simultaneous aging/shrinking of Curly Shoulders, we have seen the emergence of Lovey Dovey; the latest proxy and ambassador of the Red Okra King. As any witness can attest to, each and every Red Okra King appearance is one that will not soon be forgotten. Step up to the rainbow wall and prepare yourself for a world of tattooed werewolves, baby-eating robots, and anthroposophical fairy-tales.
