For the first time in a decade Lex are reissuing DANGERDOOM’s “The Mouse and the Mask”
Previously only available in Europe in limited quantities, this is the first time many fans will be able to get their hands on a double vinyl copy of “The Mouse and the Mask”.
Lex has a history of lavish packaging but this remains one of the lushest sleeves in the catalogue. Design by EHQuestionmark, the outer sleeve is made from thick translucent textured plastic with DOOM’s mask printed on cover, and mouse ears on each side of the mask forming a pattern that looks like a Rorschach test (a technique reused in another Danger Mouse project six months later). The inner sleeves, visible through the outer at first glance pattern based on an Ishihara test, but inside the circles in the pattern are tiny icons depicting a different disasters – climate change, acid rain, holy war, nuclear leaks.
“The Mouse and the Mask” was produced by Lex super-producer Danger Mouse and masked supervillain MF DOOM. The album features Cee-Lo Green (also of Gnarls Barkley), Talib Kweli, Ghostface Killah, Money Mark and the cast of cult cartoon show Aqua Teen Hunger Force and ten years on remains DOOM’s best selling album to date.
