Crissy is featured in the upcoming album Eban Schletter's Witching Hour, which also features Dave Foley. Looks like creepy fun for kiddie-type (and happily immature) people.
Oglio Records will be releasing "Eban Schletter's Witching Hour" on September 30th, 2008 — just in time for the Halloween season. For his "Witching Hour", Schletter recruited many of his talented friends to perform a colorful array of creepy delights for what he calls "an art record in a children's Halloween costume." But this is not your average Halloween record. In fact it's not specific to Halloween, despite the obvious appropriateness for the timing of this release. "Actually," Schletter admits, "I made a point to avoid directly referring to Halloween. I wanted to do something that would work for full moons and solstices as well!"
The album features special guest performances by:
Dave Foley (Kids In The Hall, News Radio) Paul F. Tompkins (Best Week Ever, Mr. Show with Bob and David) Grant Lee Phillips (Gilmore Girls, Grant Lee Buffalo) Jill Sobule (the original "I Kissed A Girl") Tom Kenny (the voice of Spongebob Squarepants) Samm Levine (Freaks & Geeks, Club Dread, Pulse) Dave (Gruber) Allen (Freaks & Geeks, The Naked Trucker, Gilmore Girls) Scott Aukerman (Mr. Show with Bob and David, The Sarah Silverman Program)
The coven of witches is voiced by:
Kris McGaha (The Tonight Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm) Crissy Guerrero (Mind Of Mencia, Ellen: The Musical) Laura Milligan (Tenacious D, Mr. Show with Bob and David) Tracy DeNisi (SpongeBob Squarepants, Ellen: The Musical) Carla Jimenez (Lady In The Water, Nacho Libre)
and Daamen Krall (The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari, The Nightmare Before Christmas) recites Poe-like passages with all the chills of Vincent Price.
While not a warlock, Eban Schletter is a freak of sorts. A lawyer, an amateur marine biologist and closet poet, he approaches his work with the mania of a mad scientist. Eclectic almost to the point of schizophrenia, his previous records have ranged from low-fi Americana to modern classical pipe organ music. But, it is his vast output in television and film that has earned him his living, and some accolades. His work on HBO's acclaimed sketch show Mr. Show with Bob and David won him a Cable Ace award and an Emmy nomination. He composed some of the best-loved songs from Nickelodeon's SpongeBob Squarepants, including those in the musical episode The Sponge Who Could Fly, and wrote music and lyrics for all of the songs from Comedy Central's Drawn Together (as well as all of the shows original underscore). His film credits include the recent remake of The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari, Run Ronnie Run, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd and many independent films.
Oglio's September 30th release, will be underscored by a live all-star performance of Eban Schletter's Witching Hour at Largo At The Coronet -- one haunted night only-- on Thursday Oct 30th, 2008. For more information visit http://www.largo-la.com/
