Biography

Lord Newborn and the Magic Skulls is the collaborative project of esteemed sound scientists Money Mark, Shawn Lee, and Tommy Guerrero. In the winter of 2008 they locked themselves away in Money Mark’s Los Angeles-based studio for two weeks. A tasty three-way meeting of the minds resulted in this funk-inflicted collection of beats n’ breaks, wrapped-up in a sunny West Coast musical tortilla that’s smothered in as much jazz and prog-rock as it is in soulful psychedelia.

The paths of these three prolific producer-musicians have crossed in many ways, and yet this is the first time they’ve all worked together. Good times had in the studio transferred to tape on this witty, concise, and experimental collection of tracks. The long overdue Magic Skulls chemistry was right on the money. “They are both jokers in their own right,” explains Guerrero. “Mark has an unconventional approach to everything which leaves one in awe. And Shawn’s unbridled effervescence for anything will put a smile on the grumpiest of codgers!” he adds.
