Just who are these mysteriously wrapped funk masters?
When I tried to dig up the dirt on Here Come the Mummies, I was met with an interesting challenge. While the band does indeed have a Facebook page with some basic information, true fans know you have to experience the “undead funk” to truly believe.
You can certainly buy their albums (they date back to 2002 even though the band was formed somewhere around 1000 AD). And you can hear that “terrifying funk from beyond the grave” through video footage from that old reliable YouTube.
I say a challenge because no one knows who the band members are…because it’s a closely guarded secret. Rumor has it that’s because there are several Grammy winners from competing labels playing together. Bandmates are swathed in “mummy” attire, hiding their faces and concealing their true identities.
But an even bigger challenge in digging up dirt on these guys is that when you visit their website for a history of Mummy Cass(anova), Eddie Mummy, K.W. TuT, Java, Spaz, The Flu, Ra, B.B.Queen,The Pole, Midnight...you get an error message!
And what could further the mystique of the undead funkalicious band better than that?
