Hallowe'en

Postby beerofthedark » 12th Oct 11, 11:04

It's that time of year again when I look forward to disfiguring harmless orange gourds in the name of fun. I honestly look forward to Halloween more than Xmas and part of the fun is working on my playlist for the party we always have.
Each year it has grown and grown and I am again on the lookout for new gems. So I am putting out a request for horror-themed songs. To give you an idea of the kind of thing I'm after it's not just obviously horror-related (for instance I have Zombi by Fela Kuti on there because it sounds amazing and has the word zombi on it even though it's got nothing to do with horror zombies) but the obvious horror stuff certainly helps (I have most of Zombina & the Skeletones' recorded output on there). I have horror-referencing songs like Splattermania and The Damned's Video Nasty, as well as actual horror film themes like the Exorcist and Halloween (natch). there is room for out and out cheese (Ghostbusters theme) as well as weirdness (Black Widow's Come to the Sabbat - one of the most unintentionally hilarious songs ever committed to vinyl. seriously go check it out now I'll wait http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEmALYV72sc...see, told you. wasn't that awesome?!)
So, any suggestions?

Rob Zombies track Halloween Hootenanny is always good for a play at this time of year, or any time of year thinking about it.

Very nice, lots to choose from there. Rob's 'Living Dead Girl' is a highlight on the current play list, so I don't know why I didn't go stomping around his various side projects earlier.

Keep em coming, good people!

Anything by Wednesday 13 has a good horror theme to it. Maybe try "House By The Cemetary" or "I Walked With A Zombie" both from the "Transylvania 90210" album.

ooh, just a thought anything by the Ghastly Ones or the Bomboras. Horror theme surf rock.
The Ghastly ones are actually Rob Zombies backing band on the track I mentioned earlier.

Monster mash is indeed on there, as is I Put A Spell On You save that we have the mighty Arthur Brown's version (along with Fire! of course) rather than the, equally mighty, Screamin' Jay's version.

The Misfits? Anything off the first two records is not only classic, but fits the theme...

Devilish Presley - I Created A Monster & The Beast Must Die
Perfect tracks for Halloween in my book!
Quote from a review:
If your parties lean toward the anarchic and riotous, as they should, then this is the soundtrack for you.

Don't know why I didn't think of it but the output of the Scramanga Six has a definite twilight Zone feel to it as per http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0AXSDPFQhs and of course they frequently feature the talents of Mr Catalyst. More odd than diabolical but all kudos to any band who can fit 'pyroclastic flow' into a lyric

jeff buckley's "witches rave"

mentions witches and is generally pretty spooky sounding.


and of course, the entire misfits discography :D

You are quite right, The Scaramanga Six "Purveyors of sonic evil" are our region's foremost evil pop/rock band. The last time they played Bradford the walls ran with blood, a student wet himself and the pub dog walked backwards for a week. When this video was released 4 grown men died of shock:


Can't Watch This?


What's more the new stuff is even more frightening. Listen to their stuff online here: http://thescaramangasix.bandcamp.com/ or visit the new shiny website to keep up with their antics http://www.thescaramangasix.co.uk you'll thank me later.

A good band is for life, not just for Halloween.
