Mike Mooney has had a storied career in the music business. Over the years he's had stints in Echo & The Bunnymen, The Psychedellic Furs, Spiritualized and The Wild Swans to name a few. This is his solo debut.

Reknowned for his incendiary guitar work and distinctive style it seems incredible that only now are we seeing a solo debut proper. The record is inspired by the work of American author and Godfather of the cosmic-horror genre H.P. Lovecraft. Mooney had long been a fan of Lovecraft’s work but through rereading much of his work during the coronavirus lockdown an idea for an album was planted. Using the titles of Lovecraft’s work as a springboard, Mike started recording. The songs came easily, almost as if being channeled via a conduit from some unknowable dimension of Old Gods and
unspeakable horrors.

The Cthulu Mythos is a larger-than-life, rock n’ roll affair. Purposefully distorted guitars are layered to a create a cacophonous effect that immerses you in Mike Mooney’s world populated by the creatures, characters and cosmic forces of H.P. Lovecraft’s mind.

“A joyously disheveled free spirit, Mike is the closest Liverpool has to a Jimmy Page-style guitar rock god. Mike is the gold leaf in your colour palette; the tiniest amount adds permanent lustre to the finished work.” - Paul Simpson
