For some musicians it's Halloween everyday. This is certainly true of musical artist King Dude (TJ Cowgill). Below, a message from Zeena about being the inspiration for this song, along with description & order info from the distributor, Tesco's, webpage.
"I was so happy and very honored when my dear friend TJ Cowgill (aka, King Dude) recently told me that a reminiscence I'd related to him on one of our walks in Berlin's Grunewald forest sparked the inspiration for his newest release, the 7" vinyl single, "I Was Evil".
While I don't seriously believe in dualistic labels like "good" and "evil", it was said in a humorous way and from that fleeting comment, a truly beautiful song written by King Dude, with vocals by the hauntingly velvet voiced Katrin (of the band AWEN), has emerged!
To all involved in its creation and production, I wish all the best for its success and send forth the ancient magical formula of Lord Sutekh:
"Life, Health, Strength and Happiness!"
Description/Beschreibung:STRICTLY LIMITED COLLECTOR’S VINYL EDITION OF THE COOPERATION BETWEEN KING DUDE AND AWEN.
TJ Cowgill (KING DUDE) and Erin Powell (AWEN):
Two American friends having a long conversation over whiskey and nicotine on a balmy Texas evening before a King Dude performance in Dallas, Texas. At one point TJ relays a story told to him by Zeena Schreck (née LaVey) wherein she could have effected some malice but on a whim decided not to, adding ‘but, that was back when I was evil’. That sentence was a springboard for a song idea.
The two projects came together to collaborate on this powerful 7” release “I Was Evil”, featuring the tracks “I Was Evil”, backed with “Sanctioned”!
“I Was Evil” features Katrin of AWEN’s vocal performance that is at the same time vulnerable yet formidable against the majestic and crepuscular music that KING DUDE fans have come to expect and love.
