Official Breaking News!

Through the tireless efforts of The Nick Atoms Historical Society©, we have finally uncovered, cataloged and released The Nick Atoms lost 5th album: Date Of The Dragon. 

Recorded in 2004, Date Of The Dragon was intended to be a soundtrack to a film of the same name.  Unfortunately, the film was shelved and the recording sessions were all but forgotten.

Now for the first time, we officially release the album in its complete form.  Included are the three singles that were made for the film as well as the 24 minute score.  Wyngarde’s Shatner channeling Rocket-Man, Coburn’s mysterious Looker and Dr. Ted’s Hard boozin’ rendition of Mustang Sally are all included.

So, head on over to the music page and listen to selected tracks from Date Of The Dragon or download the entire album here.

MarsCon Dementia Fund Nears Its Goal

The 2010 MarsCon Dementia Fundraiser is at 90% of its goal. You guys are doing great! However, we still need a bit more.

We have until Friday, 1/15 to reach the goal or some artists might have to back out because their won’t be enough funds to cover everyone’s lodging (keep in mind the artists are traveling to MarsCon at their own expense). You can help by purchasing the MarsCon 2010 Dementia Track CD/MP3 set, or by making a donation at MarsConDementia.com.

Programming Note

Coming Spring ’76 to ABC:

The Nick Atoms Highly Atomic Variety Hour!

The MarsCon 2010 Dementia Track Fund Raiser CD/MP3 set is now for sale!

Aside from the Music Guest Of Honor, MarsCon doesn’t have the budget necessary cover the hotel or travel costs of the dozen or so comedy music acts that come in from across the country to perform at MarsCon. The members of the con staff are awesome, and they help us out in many other great and important ways, but being a fan run con of 800 or so attendees, they just can’t provide our dementia track performers with leer jets, limo rides, and an unlimited supply of bacon (no matter how many times I ask them for the bacon). That’s why three years ago we started the MarsCon Dementia Track Fund Raiser CDs, which is set up to raise money to cover the hotel room costs for those acts who are coming in from out of town, as a way to help take care of at least one of the two big costs involved for them to come out and rock the house.

Here’s what he have for this year:
