Zombie Sing-a-long Part 3
Zombie Sing-a-long: Whistler and the Children is the last of the Zombie Sing-a-long albums. I never intended this series to stretch out to 3 full records of music and narration. But, as a storyteller, when I visit a world, I feel a compulsion to make sure all of the monsters are in place beneath all of the beds and the boogeymen are all set in their closets. I can't leave a world I create until that world's story is told. The result in this case: three full albums of music and narrative about zombies.
The final Zombie Sing-a-long record is my personal favorite of the three. My friend, Keith Moon, graciously played the drums on most of the tracks. Also, another friend and fellow author, Dave Butler, took up the undead charge by laying down a guitar solo on the song, "We'll Need Bigger Guns." But, perhaps my favorite moment of the entire album is my brother, Larry Nybo's, screaming organ solo in "We'll Need Bigger Guns." He's a wizard of the keys.
As far as zombie music? I'm done. Three is enough. Although I have thought about publishing a campfire guitar and melody sing-a-long book of many of the songs.

The video to the left is a kind of pop-up info-video about the Zombie Sing-a-long Trilogy set the song, "I'm No Martyr." The song comes from the third and final Zombie Sing-a-long record. "I'm No Martyr," like all of the other songs in this series, tells a story. It's about a man who scrawls the words, "With guns we all shall overcome," on the city building walls in his home town after the zombie apocalypse rises. For his words, the man is haled as a hero and made a leader. There's only one problem. This man is a coward. He wants nothing to do with the fight.
