  • Mystic Tape Deck successfully funded production of this 50 Page illustrated full color book and companion 16 song CD via Kickstarter in 2019:

    www.kickstarter.com/projects/mystictapedeck/mystic-tape-decks-magical-musical-mythology

    The book is a collection of reprints of several recruitment pamphlets issued by an underground musical/spiritual cult known as the "Cloak Of Nazili" in the early 1970's - complete lyrics with full color plates of original artwork by PS Perkins.

    This edition serves as the minerval guide to the Cloak, a mere introduction to the the world of and beyond the confines of one of the world's most underground, elusive and bizarre hermetic cults. A basic cosmogony and foundation of the surface mythology is cryptically laid out for eager believers and bold adventurers alike. A fusion of reality and fantasy, a "megafictional" blend of myth and fact that at once seeks to explain not only our current place and predicament as a species, but how we got here, and where we might be headed.

    What secrets will the next installment hold?
    What new strange and esoteric truths are waiting to be revealed?

about

The end of the world arrives as prophesied by the Shining One, in the form of a metaphorical flooding of destructive human action.

lyrics

Clouds are rising, the rain keeps falling
Skies are leaking and drain spouts are seeping
Roads are dipping, the hillsides are slipping
The dam is being swallowed up by the swell

Houses are going up everywhere
Plenty of people to buy the land
And they’re still swelling up and spilling over the dam
There’s a drought been washing across the land
And a famine being spread in the wake of the market’s hand
Stamping all the cattle with its corporate brand

Clouds are rising, the rain keeps falling
Skies are leaking and drain spouts are seeping
Roads are dipping, the hillsides are slipping
The dam is being swallowed up by the swell

Buildings are popping up everywhere
Plenty of people to fill the job
Beating a path as they trample the sod
No need to worry about the wrath of god
Wrap this holy robe around your naked body
The rivers are growing long and broad

Clouds are rising, the rain keeps falling
Skies are leaking and drain spouts are seeping
Roads are dipping, the hillsides are slipping
The cornerstone is tipping into the swell

It’s just a storm of the century It’s just a germ of a gentry
A gust of wind uprooting the zen tree
It’s just us climbing up the palm tree
To pluck the apple from the sin tree
As we crack the biological concrete

Clouds are rising, the rain keeps falling
Skies are leaking and drain spouts are seeping
Roads are dipping, the hillsides are slipping
The houses and people and cars
are being washed away in the swell
It’s just a swell It’s just as well...
