A while back (March 25th to be exact!) we presented a truly awful track from this rip-off superhero album by The Capes & Masks. It was a wretched pastiche of the fantastic wedding of Sue and Reed that included random explosion sound effects and made little or no sense. Bad record. Bad. Bad.
But now we present, from the very same bogus, low-budget album, one of the greatest tracks in all of comicdom. The most mind-expanding comic-oriented record I’ve ever heard. It’s the “Pet Sounds” of rip-off records. The “Sgt. Pepper” of bargain-bin music. I give you, “The Eagle’s Code.” Just listen and tell me this isn’t one of the most creative and wonderful recordings you’ve ever heard in the 99-cent rack.
Kudos to Mr. Capes and Mr. Masks for producing a rip-off record so ahead of its time!
