Fullertone Recordings
A rerelease of the song "Nightmare" off the Elixir I" Good Evening, Sir! Album. This version features Paul Gray, former bassist of The Damned, UFO, Eddie and the Hot Rods, Sensible Gray Cells, etc., and reunites him with former Damned drummer Rat Scabies.
NOTES
On this rerelease of the song "Nightmare", the song has finally reached its full potential by adding one of the most recognizable, talented, and powerful rhythm sections in punk history, bringing back together on the same track for the first time in decades, Paul Gray (The Damned, UFO, Eddie and the Hot Rods) and Rat Scabies (The Damned, The Mutants).

The song itself is a dark, powerful, melodic mash up of Southern California and UK …

Elixir, Vol. II: Election

by Professor and the Madman

Released 2016
Released 2016
This second volume of "Elixir" is more heavy and edgy than the dark, goth-edged first volume "Good Evening, Sir!". While the basic influences of The Beatles, Damned and Pink Floyd still form the foundation, a post-punk "Nirvana" type feel is present.
NOTES
This is the second installment of Professor and the Madman's "Elixir". The first volume was a dark, goth-edged trip with plenty of power that told a Faustian tale. This second volume, "Election", looks at the dark side of American politics as inspired by the fictional character Greg Stillson from Stephen King's "Dead Zone".

Each volume of "Elixir" is themed, crossing genres as in a soundtrack. The first volume, "Good Evening, Sir!", is a darkly psychedelic offering with a Faustian theme: A "desperate man" seeks the "devil's bargain"! Depending on the volume, you will find influences ranging from The Damned and early punk …

Nevermore

by Professor and the Madman

Released 2016
Released 2016
The Professor and the Madman style is eclectic: A collision between The Damned's Black Album and The Beatles' White Album, but this track has a heavy dose of 80's alternative added in for good measure.
NOTES
This single is dark and energetic, with generous helpings of atmosphere and a touch of the theatrical. Heavily influenced by the darker side of 80's British punk and pop. More generally, PATM also draws heavily from The Damned, The Beatles, Pink Floyd. There is always a story....
