THE ACCUSED To Debut 'Martha Splatterhead' Mascot At Seattle Gig

Seattle's reigning kings of "splatter rock" THE ACCUSED will debut their long-time mascot "Martha Splatterhead" live, on-stage during their performance Saturday, October 28 in Seattle, Washington at Studio Seven. With the show being just prior to Halloween night, THE ACCUSED will also judge the audience in a costume contest wherein first place wins "a real dead body!" according to a press release. Also scheduled to appear are MENTORS, D.E.K., MECHANICAL DOLLS and the debut of "National Embalming School Cheerleaders", to be filmed in high-definition color for future broadcast on Something Weird Video's digital cable, on-demand service (broadcast to over 10 million homes).

Until now, Martha Splatterhead was merely a ficticious character, invented by THE ACCUSED in a nod toward their fellow rockers, IRON MAIDEN — who of course have "Eddie." Martha has been drawn in various blood-curdling ways on album covers, t-shirts and flyers for over 20 years. She has been the "go-to" gal for several lyrical topics in songs by THE ACCUSED, including "Martha's Revenge", "She's The Killer", "She's Back" and others.

THE ACCUSED current lineup:

Tommy Niemeyer (original member since 1981) - Guitar/Vocals
Prof. Iman A. Phid (formerly "Father Shark" of industrial/metal perverts THE PLEASURE ELITE) - Bass
Mike Peterson (BAM BAM, MOMMY, APES OF WRATH, SEAN) - Drums

THE ACCUSED's first album in over ten years, "Oh, Martha!" was recorded by Jack Endino at Scotty Crane's Soundhouse Studios in Seattle and was mastered by Scott Hull (PIG DESTROYER). The CD, which was originally issued in the U.S. in 2005, was released in Europe via Nuclear Blast Records.
