Many thanks to BoingBoing for pointing out to me the new EP from a band called Mad Tea Party.  The album is called Zombie Boogie, and it’s perfect Halloween party music.  With lyrics like this, how could you go wrong?

skullsq2

Zombie boogie, it’s a killer jive
Zombie boogie, it’s not alive
Zombie boogie, no one survives

Zombie boogie, it’s the latest craze
Zombie boogie, straight from the grave
Zombie boogie, puts you in a daze

Zombie boogie, it’s a solid fact
Zombies died, now they’re comin’ back
It’s the zombie boogie, and you’re a snack

To hear the EP’s songs, including Zombie Boogie and Cemetery Stomp, go here.  You can also download the tracks there as well for about a dollar a song.  If you download all of them, you get a bonus song, a cover of the 80’s classic Abba Cadabra.  Awesome!!!
