Who's familiar with, "Here Come The Mummies"?? (Band)

They're a funk band, in costumes.

One of the theories about the costumes is that they are a group of studio musicians contracted to different studios in Nashville, and the costumes allow them to perform together without the legal hassles of "breach of contract" suits.

    Love that band! From what I remember from the Bob and Tom radio show they started out as studio musicians. Now I pretty sure they don't have to worry about those contracts. They do travel all over and still wear the costumes. When you get a chance check out their YouTube video called Pants! Hilarious as all get out.
    Refusing to conform to the left wing mantra of political correctness by insisting on telling the truth does not make you a loud mouth.

    Saw them in concert...... 6 years ago maybe?

    I generally think bands sound terrible in concert (Ratt, Def Leppard). Not HCM...... They sound great! I highly recommend going toone

    Contracts!  Sheesh!

    Remember the Travelling Wilburys?  When music GODS like Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne have to go by pseudonyms to form a band and record together, we are truly well past the point of needing to barbecue the lawyers. :#
