ASKED QUESTIONS & CREDITS
Here are some answers to frequently
asked questions about PHASER ROCK. Credits are
1. Are the songs on "PHASER
ROCK: ALL FIRED UP!" available on CD?
not right now. We might release the album on CD at some point in the
future, but for now, it is much more technologically efficient
and ecologically considerate to use on-line digital
distribution. Please visit
iTunes or BandCamp to download the album.
2. Is that really the guy from the
TV show actually singing?
No, it's just a wacky comedy bit. The PHASER ROCK singer,
LIEUTENANT SOLO, is
actually a comedian named Mark Jonathan Davis. The character voices
on this album and website are parody impersonations, and not
performances by the original actors. The original actors
have not participated in nor collaborated on these recordings.
This material is fictional and any similarity to characters or
persons is strictly coincidental. Celebrity Voices
3. Where have I heard this impersonation before?
You probably heard Mark Jonathan Davis impersonating this
character on the KROQ 106.7 FM Kevin & Bean Morning Show in Los Angeles,
on the air and on their holiday CDs.
You can hear some of those radio bits at MJD's Intergalactic
Comedy Hacienda website by visiting
(link opens in new window). A "Phaser Rock"
performance of "Light My Fire" also appeared on the 2011 Richard
Cheese album "A Lounge Supreme."
Why are the songs so short?
The album on iTunes is only 15 minutes long, that seems like a
rip-off for $9.99.
Yeah, you're right. Don't buy it. Phew, you almost
spent ten whole dollars. Whoa, that was a close one.
Do you have to get permission from the original artists to use
We aren't required to get permission to record the songs, but we
are required to obtain licenses to sell the songs via digital downloads, and we are also required to pay a royalty
for each song use to the original song's
publishers. For each song on the album, we pay the publisher 10¢
per download sale. More info about this process can be obtained
Will there will be live concert performances of these PHASER ROCK songs?
Possibly. Please check the "EVENTS" page for
Are there more albums planned?
Yes. The next PHASER ROCK albums will be called "Bridge Over
Troubled Water," "The
Unforgettable Fire," and "Highway To Helm."
A royalty payment
is made for the use of each song on this album.
