3 Crooked Tales Album Cover

3 CROOKED TALES

3 CROOKED TALES is a high-octane, punk/rock, 3-song release that fuses a ‘60s bubblegum vibe with a snarling, punk delivery reminiscent of classic bands like The Buzzcocks and The Damned. 

The debut single, AUTOMATIC OVULATOR is a tale of a strange love affair. E. P. wrote the music and lyrics, played all the instruments except bass, and directed the official video in a kaleidoscopic, Pop Art style. He co-produces with renowned producer Tim Hilliard. Tim also plays bass and masters the track.

WATCH the official video for AUTOMATIC OVULATOR, directed by E. P. on 1/22/21 @ 11AM PST, and download the mp3 FREE here, for 48 hours only.

*All 3 songs will be available for purchase and streaming later in 2021.

Act I
HINDENPIG!

The One Acts open with Hindenpig! based on a true story about a marketing stunt played by the band Pink Floyd. In 1976, to advertise their album Animals, Pink Floyd loosed a giant, floating pink pig over the Battersea factory in England, where it quickly disappeared from view. In our story, the pig reaches the English Channel, where a doddering old Naval Commander imagines it to be a belated German attack from World War II. This brings back memories of the great war, of regret, of fear of losing his command in the Navy and command of his own mind. Cast is 3 people; Commander, Bootsy (First Mate) and Syd (Rock Star)

~ This play represents the fear of becoming obsolete ~

Act 2
TOON ANGST

Second is Toon Angst, where we meet Joey and Danny, two out of luck, unemployed cartoon characters. They bemoan the fact that most animated films today are in 3D, yet sadly they are 2D and can't really do much about it. They brainstorm ways to make a buck, and talk about the fates of their more famous peers, Bugs Bunny, Sylvester The Cat, Tweety and Elmer Fudd. As they become increasingly more desperate, they are surprised by the entrance of a God, the very God who kept them alive all those years in cartoons. Cast is 3 people; (2 in furry costumes), Danny (Rabbit), Joey (Beaver/Woodchuck or Squirrel), and Deuce (Greek God).

~ This play represents the fear of poverty ~

Act 3
ROYAL CANNIBALISM

Third of the 6 acts is Royal Cannibalism, where we meet a Mother and Son on the evening of the son's 25th birthday in the living room of their estate. The two represent the most elevated upper crust of British Society, and we are flies on the wall as they talk about their secret order that is hundreds of years old, dedicated to eradicating undesirable human beings by killing and eating them individually. But is the son starting to crack under the enormity of their evil deeds? Cast is 2 people; Elizabeth (Mother), and Persival (Son).

~ This play represents the fear of damnation ~

-- INTERMISSION --

Act 4
AFTER THE STORM

Fourth of the 6 acts is After The Storm, a tale of a sinking ship at sea. We find five crew members drifting in the middle of the Atlantic the day after a hurricane. Miraculously, they are alive, though their communication systems are fried, their ship is taking on water and they have absolutely no hope of rescue. We see them each come to terms with their fate in different ways, some by taking action, some being paralyzed by fear. Cast is 5 people; A Military Commander (Sarge), The Captain (George), The First Mate (Bill), Engine Repair (Marge), and Navigation (Dane).

~ This play represents the fear of being a leader ~

Act 5
EARTH FOR SALE

Fifth of the 6 acts is Earth For Sale, where we find a married couple hurriedly leaving Earth in a spaceship. The husband is seeking a new life in research and engineering on the recently-discovered habitable planets and his wife is asleep as the play opens. But was she actually drugged and kidnapped from her family and home planet just to further his career? Cast is 3 people; Husband (Jordan), Wife (Juliet), and The Executive (Voice only).

~ This play represents the fear of being ostracized ~

Act 6
GODFELLAS

The sixth and final act is Godfellas. This play takes place in Ancient Greece when Gods ruled humanity and the people made sacrifices to them. A mortal emerges and dares to defy the Gods by advocating for the people to end human sacrifice. He gains great popularity among his peers, and the Gods perceive him as a threat. (All the Gods speak with Brooklyn accents like in Goodfellas). The play ends with a monologue from Deuce from Toon Angst, where he ties all the plays together and asks the audience to look into the mirror to see the lion looking back. Cast is 5 people; God 1 (Joop), God 2 (Pollo), God 3 (Ermeez), God 4 (Diana), and God 5 (Deuce),

~ This play represents the fear of being yourself ~
