a.k.a. Mr. Swami Creep
This is a version of the classic Mr. Bali Hai tiki mug with the black and white skull mask of the Creepxotica band and with a Swami turban pinned with a green jewel and a coffin and bat on the front.
Mr. Bali Hai is an oblong head with a bone through the nose and large hoop earrings, with sleepily lidded eyes -- the carved version being a mascot that greets visitors at the entrance to the Bali Hai.
Creepxotica is the Exotica Music playing alter ego of The Creepy Creeps band which started out doing a "haunted style" of Bossa Nova music.
Based on his long-running San Diego radio program recognized across the nation, SWAMI SOUND SYSTEM on Slacker Radio started in 2012 and features obscure tracks hand-selected by the Swami (John Reis) along with the zany monologues that he is known for. SWAMI SOUND SYSTEM gives attention to unheard songs with big impact from a range of genres including punk, reggae, psychedelic, blues and soul.
Released at the Bali Hai on August 4th, 2022.
