I am frequently asked about the Mystic Skull and its
origin. It is my skull. I had just come back from
having a head scan and I had a negative of one side of my head.
I showed it to Philco, formerly an artist with the
Hanna-Barbera studios, had joined Mystic to become
a producer. While he was learning, he handled the
art work we used on the record covers.
Phil was looking for ideas for Tee shirts. He took the one side and made a complete skull. He also took a
right tooth out to match mine. I liked it. We needed
an artist to complete it. We went to KRK Art. Keith
Ryden made the Skull we use today and charged $60.
He also made a mirror and it used to hang at Mystic.
We've always wondered where it went when we moved.
I trademarked my skull. It is now not only our record label, it is part of the group names and record names.
This trademarks our artwork and the designs we use.
Since Mystic has originated names like HOLLYWEIRD,
SLIMEY VALLEY, NARDCORE, BULLSHIT BAY, and
MARINELAND, we have protected them for our future
use in Films, Books, Clothing and Merchandise. For
those wishing to associate with Mystic , we are pleased
to welcome suggestions of use for our trademarked,
